Weather in this October more corresponds to the November, I'll say. Where are the Global Warming? That's just mean, Global Warming!
St Prokopius was a German Catholic, merchant, who traded with Novgorod the Great in 1270-s. He converted to the Orthodox Christianity, and become a monk in Varlaamo-Chutynsky Monastery in Novgorod. He was canonised after his death for his prophesies and some other things, and become one of the a local saints of Novgorod City. As he was a merchant before, merchants of Novgorod liked him a lot and send their prayers to him, and built churches in his name.
Church of St Prokopius are standing on the Yaroslav's Court in Novgorod, and was built by rich merchant Dmitry Syrkov in 1521.
Nice example of Russian architecture of XVI century, it is.

An excellent note informs this photograph of the five hundred year old church. The overcast sky does not provide the light for vivid colors, but the church itself is quite austere. Your collection of architectural portraits of churches is unique.
Warm regards from Virginia,

Good morning, neighbour! ;-)
Here you show us a wonderful humble and little church - in human dimensions - perhaps more touching than a cathedral. I like these few small adornments here. A photo nearly without any colour - interesting! Yes, ... and weather - it's like here, but we have had 21°C yesterday!
Greetings from a wet and grey Germany with 17°C today!

I like the simplicity of this architecture, yet it is very individual with original features!
Good texture in the white walls, the details come well through...
Low light on a gloomy day adds to the mood!
