Andrei Rublev Museum is open to pilgrims Automatic translate
The figure of the most revered Russian icon painter Andrei Rublev is still as if hidden from our eyes. Despite the fact that a lot of his works have survived to our days, despite the fact that he has been canonized, in spite of all the scientific works devoted to his work and life, the master himself stands as if aloof and slightly above us, an intermediary between the heavenly and earthly.
Biographical information about Andrei Rublev is extremely small - neither the exact place of birth, nor date of birth, nor even a worldly name is known to his historians. Andrei is the monastic name of the icon painter, Rublev is the nickname. All that we have is only his work.
The museum named after Andrei Rublev opened after the war in Moscow on the territory of the Spaso-Andronnikov Monastery. The museum has a very narrow specialization - Russian religious art of the pre-Petrine era, however, the rich exposition of the museum and the great scientific work carried out here made the Andrei Rublev Museum one of the main pilgrimages in Moscow. Both the monastery and the museum are the most interesting objects of Russian Orthodox culture, which, no doubt, are worth a visit at least once in a lifetime.
In just a few years, the pilgrimage in Russia has grown into a serious area of activity, in many cities companies specializing in pilgrimage began to open. There are several reasons for such a serious development: as a rule, pilgrimage trips are worth the usual tourist trips, pilgrimage is made to the largest shrines of our country, which are of great importance for believers, the trips themselves are always carefully thought out and organized at a high level. In addition, the pilgrimage has deep historical roots and great sacred meaning.
Pilgrimage trips are also made to foreign shrines. Often, pilgrim tours from St. Petersburg http://www.solun.gr/article/palomnicheskie_tury_iz_spb Mount Athos is almost the only opportunity to visit the Holy Land for the faithful of St. Petersburg. Although the cost of such a trip is quite high, as we have already said, it is still lower than that of travel companies, has a rich program where there is nothing superfluous, and makes it possible to feel the whole deep meaning of the pilgrimage.
