Photographer's Note

As I told you before, there are eleven chapels inside Saint Basil Cathedral. This one is paying homage to Saint Basil and you can see a small part of his tomb at right and an icon with him nude ahead.
In the time the church was built there was many men, named fool of Christ, who walked by the streets in intense poverty, almost nude, even in the coldest days of year. They tried to convert the sinners with their extreme devotion. The most famous of them was Basil, he had the gift of the prophecy and even Ivan, the Terrible, liked him a lot, even when the saint said many bad words to him, he the only who wasn't killed after saying that.
When Basil died he was a very popular saint and after some time was built a special chapel to buried the saint inside the cathedral, it was built out of the original pattern. It was the only heated and because this it was the most popular; after some years the name of the chapel was gave to the whole church.
Once again we can see the iconostasis and the gate to sacred part of the chapel.

Como já disse antes, dentro da Catedral de São Basílio existem onze capelas, uma delas foi feita em homenagem ao santo, e vocês podem ver um pedacinho do túmulo dele à direita na foto. No fundo temos uma pintura com o santo nu.
Na época em que a catedral foi erguida, existiam em Moscou muitos homens excessivamente religiosos, chamados de Loucos de Cristo, eles não tinham nada e andavam pelas ruas, quase nus, mesmo durante os dias mais frios do inverno, e tentavam pregar a palavra de Deus e converter os pecadores. O mais famoso desses homens era chamado Basílio, que tinha o dom da profecia. Mesmo Ivan, o Terrível, gostava dele e nunca o castigou, mesmo quando o santo o acusava.
Quando Basílio morreu, tornou-se um santo popular e ergueram uma capela ao lado da catedral para o enterrar, essa capela era a única com aquecimento e portanto a mais requisitada pelo povo e com o passar do tempo o nome da capela acabou denominando toda a catedral.
Vemos aqui o iconóstase e a porta do recinto sagrado.
