Voroneț



Ruth: I am afraid Gord has lost his blogging privileges for a bit. He does struggle with what is acceptable in a post. 

This morning we visited our last Painted Monastery in Bucovina. Voroneț is the most visited of all the monasteries  and at 9:30 in the morning it was already swarming with tourists making their way through a kilometre of craft stalls to the entrance of the monastery.  Shortly after we arrived one of the nuns began hammering a gong to call all to prayer. 



I left Gord to contemplate hell fire while I popped into the church, but it was already too full to see anything beyond the entrance. 




The judging of souls and as usual the demons cheat


The Devil in the River of Fire


As part of the Last Judgement animals bring back the human body parts they have previously taken, and sunken ships rise from the deep


The Tree of Jesse
