alma_jmarc. Cathedral of the Transfiguration, a Slovak Byzantine Rite Roman Cathol

Cathedral of the Transfiguration, a Slovak Byzantine Rite Roman Catholic former cathedral in Markham, Ontario, Canada. (Pictured here from the front of the property and animated by me) . Other interesting facts, to add to my previous post: ✝️First Catholic Church in North America to have been personally blessed by a pope. Pope John Paul II blessed the cornerstone and the altar stone during his 1984 Canadian visit. ✝️The three cathedral bells together form the largest bell set in the world, weighing a whopping 32,000 pounds and were built at the prestigious Paccard Foundry in France. ✝️The three onion domes are plated in 22-karat gold. ✝️The art for the mosaics was created by Toronto-based artist, Roumen Kirinkov, and the mosaics were created by a team of four artisans from Travisanutto Mosaics in northern Italy. They are among only a half-dozen people in the world qualified to produce flawless mosaic renderings on a curved surface. Two members of the team came to Canada for six weeks to undertake the painstaking task of installing more than 1.4 million Venetian Smalti glass stones, known as tesserae, on the 1,000-square-foot surface of the Circle under the Dome and the Pendentives. ✝️One of the mosaics of Jesus, which adorns the central dome, cost $1.2 million. ✝️It was featured in the 2013 Canadian independent film "Rearview". . On a personal note, as a horror movie aficionado, I was stoked to learn that the exterior of the cathedral was also used in the 1995 horror movie “In the Mouth of Madness”. A priest administering the cathedral at the time allowed the director, John Carpenter, to film the scene for a fee of $10,000. The cathedral appears in some of the movie posters. . . . #cathedralofthetransfiguration #slovak #byzantine #romancatholic #stephenbroman #uranium #denisonmines #elliotlake #popejohnpaulii #paccard #foundry #22karatgold #mosaics #oniondome #cupola #travisanuttomosaics #tesserae #cathedraltown #markham #inthemouthofmadness #horrorfilms #indiefilms #rearview #toronto

alma_jmarc. Cathedral of the Transfiguration, a Slovak Byzantine Rite Roman Cathol

Cathedral of the Transfiguration, a Slovak Byzantine Rite Roman Catholic former cathedral in Markham, Ontario, Canada. (Pictured here from the back and animated by me) . It is privately owned by the family of Stephen B. Roman, a uranium mining magnate, who conceived and funded the project and began construction in 1984. . Unfortunately, Mr. Roman didn’t get to see his vision completed because he died four years later, in 1988, leaving his daughter, Helen Roman-Barber, to take charge of the foundation that owns the cathedral. . The magnificent landmark has a turbulent but fascinating history. Due to ownership rights disputes between the owners and the Eastern-rite Catholic church, the cathedral was temporarily closed to the public from 2006 to 2016, while extensive work was done to the interior. . In 2016, the City of Markham issued a temporary occupancy permit to allow Jesus the King Greek Melkite Catholic Church to use the Cathedral for weekend masses, even though extensive interior work is still underway. . To date this cathedral has cost $30-million and has not yet been completed. It sits lonely-looking and empty most of the time, surrounded by 50 acres with a No Trespassing sign out front. . . . #cathedralofthetransfiguration #slovak #byzantine #romancatholic #stephenbroman #uranium #denisonmines #elliotlake #popejohnpaulii #paccard #foundry #22karatgold #mosaics #oniondome #cupola #travisanuttomosaics #tesserae #cathedraltown #markham #inthemouthofmadness #horrorfilms #indiefilms #rearview #toronto

Byzantine 6th to 8th Century ring. Of all the periods of jewellery, I most admire this time. The contrast between the raw and precious material rendered together by timeless smithing techniques always leaves me in awe. I return to my books with such references and I am always inspired even when what I’m working on has no bearing in design to this style 🖤 #inspiration #jessicaaggreyjewellery #byzantine #gems #antiquity #Venice #musing #precious #fine

The golden domes of Kiev’s cathedrals. So much grandeur in one place, so many contrasts between these and the surrounding greying tower blocks and tiny houses with tin roofs just outside the city. Aside from being completely struck by the sheer scale and beauty, I did wonder if someone had messed up and ordered 100 tubs of gold paint instead of 10 back in the 11th century????

Battle of the Gentlemen In 1915, during the First World War, the British Empire decided to pass Gallipoli (Dardanelles) in order to reach Istanbul and ‘convince’ the Ottoman Sultan to let them provide Russia with the support they needed. The fight was fierce, bloody and unusual; thus establishing a friendship between ANZAC and Turkish soldiers, becoming known as the Battle of the Gentlemen. Since it was the first major military action in the history of Australia and New Zealand, the Gallipoli campaign is considered to be the birthplace of the Australian and New Zealand nations. Each year on the anniversary of the 24th of April, the grandsons and granddaughters of ANZAC heroes come to Turkey from the “land down under” in order to gather in Gallipoli, Anzac Cove for the dawn service during which the flags of three nations are raised together on the same shore where the first ANZAC boot touched the land of Gallipoli. We cannot deny that war is an ugly catastrophe. Yet, unfortunately, the value of peace and friendship cannot be understood without it. As a great warrior said once: “Peace at home, peace in the world.” #anzacday #anzac #australia #newzealand #istanbul🇹🇷 #estambul #turkeytours #turkey #alltoursturkey #travelphotography #travelblog #travelblogger #photography #istanbultour #argentine #uruguay #spanish #colombia #brasil #traveller #instatravel #love #history #historical #ottoman #byzantine #gallipoli #troy

If a wall could speak, this structure known as the ‘Haigh Sophia’ would have an abundance of stories to tell. This marvel structure stood the test of time and war, surviving the centuries of the conquest of some of the history’s greatest empires. Built-in 547 AD by Emperor Justinian I of Byzantine Empire (Eastern Roman Empire) and later in 1453 AD conquered by Sultan Mehmet II of Ottoman Empire. Historians claim when the Ottoman Empire siege Constantinople (Istanbul). Their army demolished churches, houses destroyed, and goods plundered except for ‘Haigh Sophia’. Which Sultan Mehmet II then turn it into a mosque. Once an Orthodox Church then a mosque and now serving as a museum. This middle age structure has fascinated me profoundly that it was in my bucket list to visit and I have full filled my wish today 🙏 #🇹🇷 #2019#
