Smolenskiy cathedral.
At the beginning initially XVIII age, when Belgorod was not simply outpost, but also spiritual-administrative centre enormous on extent Belgorod defensive of the line, sentry shelf Mefodiy Ivanov, have guard beside east winch of the fortresses, became the witness of the event, find reflection in "Tales about phenomena of the miraculous icon Smolenskiya Presvyatyya Virgin maries Odigitrii, appeared in Belgorod...". Originally shown icon was determined in outgates chapel, but already in 1705 "on care and on donation prince of Belgorod I.M. Kolcov-Mosalskiy was made on place of the phenomena of the icon wooden church".
Begin construction stone two-story Smolenskiy cathedral accounts for 1737, at period for peace history region centre. The period of the erection - 27 years - at first seems unjustified big, but, considering sizes temple buildings and possible delays of the arrival of the bankrolls, he looks explained.
Many changes happened to to outlive the temple for nearly трехвековую history. Smolenskiy cathedral is in full checked on toughness and has saved not only imperishable arrays sewer, but also its high destination.
Nothing do not please so, as realization to thoughts that returned the timeses of the Faith. That people come to temple, and that for our детей he will not become recollection about enigmatic ruins.
Presently cathedral - second on value in count;calculate;list белгородских temple. Its receipts - an inhabitants of the town centre, in its wall works the sunday school.
But if speak of external look Smolenskiy cathedral, that, certainly, not all in its reconstructions is made so, what wanted. But main, the temple acts, he as before is beautifully inserted in surrounding its architectral ensemble and, undoubtedly, is town "pearl", striking us its calm, certain greatness.
