Sergei Goloseevskom was able to visit mount Athos where there’d never been no crew in the world.
Sergei Holosievsky went to the monastery
On the eve of Easter, 30 April, NTV will show a unique film by Sergei Horoshevskogo “Athos. Russian
the legacy”. The film crew of channel managed the almost impossible — to solve the mystery of the Holy mount Athos, this state within a state, the world’s only monastic Republic.
Twenty monasteries, dozens of monasteries and cloisters, shrines
and miraculous icons. A land full of legends. The place where the monks pray for all
us. The filmmakers received the blessing to work in the largest monasteries of mount Athos, and numerous sketes and cells, which in itself is a rare success. Journalists were able to observe daily monastic life: how is the divine services, imposed obedience, preparing the meal.
Athos took off, as before that still has not been removed, — said Sergey. — Can
to be, is it just luck? And maybe something more? It’s no wonder with these places
connected hundreds of legends and divine tales. But the fact remains: we
opened doors that were closed decades”.
Risking his life, Sergei
Holosievsky even went up to the Karula — this is the most inaccessible part of mount Athos, inhabited by hermits. To get to their cells need, like hundreds of years ago, doing a dangerous path to go into the edge of the cliff, holding on to the nailed to the rocks
chain. Here the monks live in seclusion and do not want to show their faces.
