Apostles Thaddeus and Bartholomew
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
According to Armenian Church tradition, the Apostles Thaddeus and Bartholomew traveled through Armenia in AD 45 to preach the word of God; many people were converted and numerous secret Christian communities were established there.
The ancient Christian historian Moses of Khorene tell the following story, considered a legend by most modern historiography. Thaddeus converted King Abgar V of Edessa. After his death, the Armenian kingdom was split into two parts. His son Ananun crowned himself in Edessa, while his nephew Sanatruk ruled in Armenia. About AD 66, Ananun gave the order to kill St. Thaddeus in Edessa. The king's daughter Sandokht, who had converted to Christianity, was martyred with Thaddeus. Her tomb is said to be located near the Ghara Kelisa.

una focale molto corta ed un punto di ripresa molto basso hanno dato una particolare evidenza a questo soggetto praticamente sconosciuto in occidente che dell'Iran si limita a conoscere le belle moschee di Esfahan, pasargades, Persepolis, Tabriz e la capitale Tehran.
Ma avendo un particolare interesse per questo paese ogni volta che vedo una qualche foto che rappresenta qualche suo luogo devo dire che le tue rappresentazioni rappresentano un ottimo elemento pubblicitario anche perchè propongono luoghi e monumenti sconosciuto, ma non per questo meno apprezzabili.
Stai facendo un ottimo lavoro e sono certo che quando il tuo paese sarà aperto al turismo tu potrai essere ben fiero di aver contribuito alla conoscenza del tuo bel paese.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Appealing vertical interior view of the classical rock architecture of the monastery with Romanesque arches and dome, contrasted with the intricate rugs' colorful patterns.

I am enjoying your series on St Thadeus. So far we have seen the exterior of this beautiful church and now the interior is beautiful too. I like your low POV, the excellent management of the light and shade and effect of the wide angle. The large foreground is beautifully saturated and you chose the vertical frame well.

Un superbe point de vue très bas, qui donne l'impression que tu es agenouillé sur ce très beau tapis pour regarder au ciel par ce très beau dôme. Le monastère est d'une très belle simplicité.

I am really glad that you share also the interior of this highly interesting piece of architecture. You have achieved a very interesting effect here with vertically wide feeling.
Very original perspective,

beautiful interior of this monastery and interesting note. Good POV and composition

To my canadian eyes this indoors view of a church appears quite exotic and as it has been long standing.
Quite a solid construction, soberly decorated that keeps impregnated on the brick walls the incense smells.
Many compliments for the perfect technique that shows all the recesses!
