Fedor Church and S. Prokudin-Gorsky ... Yaroslavl, Russia

1) Yaroslavl is one of the cities of Russia, in the development of which all the main directions of Russian architecture of the 16th — 20th centuries are represented. The high preservation of the historical and architectural fabric of the city center provided him a place in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. In this report we will look at the Temple of the Feodor icon of the Mother of God with you in 1682-1687. built, comparable to how this church looked in 1911 in the pictures of S. Prokudin-Gorsky.

2) The temple is located near the tributary of the Volga of the Kotorosli River a little away from Moscow Avenue on Bolshaya Fedorovskaya Street, if you walk from the Moscow Railway Station towards the city center. I highly recommend that you turn off and go to this temple and the Church of St. John the Forerunner in Tolchkovo, the turn of which will be in the next report - they are very beautiful, you will not regret it. Unfortunately, I am not very familiar with the temple architecture (at the same time, I am very interested), so I would be grateful for the amendments in the correct form and exchange of opinions.
There is a XVII century tale about the miraculous healing of John Pleshkov's resident man, who in 1669 fell into a "fierce illness of relaxation" (paralysis), and healed after two men appeared in a dream in a holy dress and ordered pilgrimage to Kostroma to the icon of Our Lady of Theodore - the prayer image of the kings of the new Romanov dynasty, and then build a temple.

3) The painting of the church was entrusted to the Kostroma icon painter of the 2nd half of the 17th century. Guriy Nikitin. The construction site was provided on September 27, 1683 by Ivan Moiseev Denisovsky, which was his personal household. As it was accepted in pre-Peter Russia, the parish church was the result of the collective creativity of all the inhabitants of the then district of Yaroslavl. Metropolitan Jonah Sysoyevich (initiator of the construction of "heavenly heaven on earth" in Rostov Veliky) gave the temple a blessed letter, according to which it was consecrated on July 24, 1687.

4) According to its characteristics, the Fedorovskaya Church is typical for the mature stage in the development of Yaroslavl temple architecture, being distinguished only by its laconic decor (probably due to the fact that it was built not by the richest merchants, but by the whole world).The archaic, cathedrally strict quadrangle (quadrangular or tetrahedral volume of the main part of the structure) contrasts with the large, lush pentagol, which gives the whole building an expressive, graceful silhouette. The height of the church is 36 m.
