Iglesia de Santa María Magdalena (Jerusalén)

De Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre
El Monte de los Olivos y la iglesia de Santa María Magdalena.

La iglesia de Santa María Magdalena (en ruso: Храм Марии Магдалины, Khram Marii Magdaline) es un templo de la iglesia ortodoxa rusa situado en el Monte de los Olivos, cerca del Jardín de Getsemaní, en Jerusalén.[1] Está dedicada a María Magdalena y en sus instalaciones se enuentran las reliquias de dos santos mártires ortodoxos.

[editar] Historia

Está dedicada a María Magdalena (María de Magdala) una seguidora de Jesús. De acuerdo con el versículo XVI del evangelio de Marcos, María Magdalena fue la primera en ver a Cristo después de su resurrección.[2] Es considerada una de las discípulas importantes y cruciales de Jesús, y al parecer la mujer más allegada, junto con María de Betania, la algunos creen que se trata de la misma mujer.[3] La iglesia fue construida en 1886 por el zar Alejandro III de Rusia, en honor a su madre, la emperatriz María Alexandrovna de Rusia. Fue construida por David Grimm con el tradicional techo estilo tienda de campaña, popular en los siglos XVI y XVII en Rusia, e incluye siete distintivas cúpulas doradas tipo «cebolla».[1] El convento está situado directamente enfrente del Monte del Templo cruzando el valle de Cedrón.

[editar] Reliquias

En la iglesia están enterrados los restos de dos santos mártires ortodoxos, la Gran Duquesa Isabel Fiódorovna Románova de Rusia y su compañera la monja Varvara Yakovleva. También está enterrada allí la princesa Alicia de Grecia —sobrina de la Gran Duquesa y suegra de la reina Isabel II del Reino Unido—, que prestó ayuda a miembros de la comunidad judía, durante la ocupación nazi de Grecia.[1]

The Church of Mary Magdalene
is a Russian Orthodox church located on the Mount of Olives, near the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem, Israel.

The church is dedicated to Mary Magdalene (Miryam of Migdal), a follower of Jesus. According to the sixteenth chapter of the gospel of Mark, Mary Magdalene was the first to see Christ after his resurrection. (Mark 16:9) She is considered a crucial and important disciple of Jesus, and seemingly his primary female associate, along with Mary of Bethany, whom some believe to have been the same woman.[1]

The church was built in 1886 by Tsar Alexander III to honor his mother, Empress Maria Alexandrovna of Russia. It was constructed to David Grimm's design in the traditional tented roof style popular in 16th and 17th century Russia, and includes seven distinctive, gilded onion domes. The convent is located directly across the Kidron Valley from the Temple Mount.

Two martyred saints, who are the Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna of Russia and her fellow nun Varvara Yakovleva are buried in the church.[2]

In the 1930s, Princess Alice of Battenberg, mother of the Duke of Edinburgh, visited the church and asked to be buried near the Grand-Duchess Elizabeth. In 1969, she died at Buckingham Palace. In 1988, her remains were transferred to a crypt below the church.[3]

The painting is of Tiberius being taught a lesson by Mary Magdalene

In her hand she holds a red egg which she presents to the Emperor, symbolizing the resurrection and eternal life. She tells Tiberius about the unjust judgment and death on the cross of Jesus Christ. It is known that after re-examining this unlawful trial Pilate, at that time governor of Jerusalem, was deposed and sent into exile.

Mount Olives and Gethesamene

Tomb of the Prophets: Beginning at the top of the Mount of Olives is the Tomb of the prophets. According to Jewish tradition this is the location of where the prophets Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi are buried. However, the tombs are actually catacombs which came into use around 1st century B.C.

what is interesting is the Dome of the Rocks has a gold roof and so does Mary Magdalene Church

In the chapel of Mary Magdalene at the Church of the Holy Sepulcre

Church of St Mary Magdalene

Onion domes and ornate frontage of Church of St Mary Magdalene (Seetheholyland.net)

Seven gilded onion domes, each topped by a tall Russian Orthodox cross, make the Church of St Mary Magdalene one of Jerusalem’s most picturesque sights.

It makes an especially striking spectacle at night, when its floodlit domes seem to be floating above the dark trees that surround it.

The church stands on the western slope of the Mount of Olives, above the Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of All Nations. It commemorates the enigmatic Mary from Magdala  — revered as a saint by the Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican and Lutheran churches — who was one of the few persons named in the Gospels as being present at Christ’s crucifixion and who was the first recorded witness of his Resurrection.

In its convent live about 30 Russian Orthodox nuns from several different countries. While particularly known for the quality of their liturgical singing, they also paint icons, embroider vestments and items for liturgical use, and decorate Russian eggs.


Design reflects Muscovite architecture

The Church of St Mary Magdalene was built in 1888 by Czar Alexander III of Russia, in memory of his mother, Empress Maria Alexandrovna, whose patron saint was Mary Magdalene.

Its onion-shaped domes and the general style reflect the architecture of Moscow during the 16th and 17th centuries.

Although the intricately decorated façadeappears to be made of marble, it is actually of sculpted white sandstone.

Above the entrance a circular blue mosaicmedallion depicts Mary Magdalene robed in white.


Painting illustrates Mary Magdalene legend

In contrast to the exterior, the interior of the Church of St Mary Magdalene is rather plain. The walls are covered with designs, predominantly in shades of brown.The white marble and bronze iconostasis — the partition that separates the nave from the sanctuary — holds icons and paintings, including depictions of the four Evangelists, the Virgin Mary and the archangel Gabriel.

Above the iconostasis, a large canvas by Russian artist Sergei Ivanov illustrates a popular legend in which Mary Magdalene travels to Rome to tell the Emperor Tiberius of Jesus’ unfair trial and unjust sentence. She is shown presenting the emperor with a red egg, symbolising the Resurrection and eternal life.

To the right side of the iconostasis, a 16th-century icon of the Virgin Mary in a hand-carved wooden case has a place of honour. The icon is said to have miraculous powers.


Two Russian saints are buried

On either side of the nave is a marble sarcophagus, each containing the body of a Russian Orthodox saint.

The better known one is Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna. A German princess, she was the wife of the Czar’s brother Sergei, a sister of the Czar’s wife Alexandra — and a granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

The grand duchess took a deep personal interest in the church and was responsible for commissioning its art works.

Widowed when an assassin killed her husband in 1905, she founded a convent and became its abbess. She and her nuns did much to help alleviate the suffering of the poor in Moscow.

After the Russian Revolution, Grand Duchess Elizabeth, her companion Sister Barbara Yakovleva and other members of the Russian imperial family were thrown down a mine shaft by the Bolsheviks in 1918 and left to die.

The bodies of Grand Duchess Elizabeth and Sister Barbara (whose remains are in the other sarcophagus) were eventually smuggled out of Russia and brought to Jerusalem. Both women have been canonised as martyrs by the Russian Orthodox Church.

In a crypt below the church is buried Princess Alice of Greece, the mother of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. She had expressed a wish to be buried near Grand Duchess Elizabeth, who was her aunt.
