Assumption Cathedral

Russia, Moscow

The present Assumption Cathedral was laid on a site where the first stone cathedral of Moscow used to stand. The original cathedral is said to have been built between 1326 and 1327 under Prince Ivan Kalita. It was the Italian architect Aristotle Fioravanti who erected the cathedral between 1475-1479, modeling it on the Assumption Cathedral of the ancient city of Vladimir in order to demonstrate Moscow's succession towards the latter.   During four centuries the Assumption cathedral stayed the main Moscow church, leading religious and cultural center of Russia. It was the cathedral where successors to the throne were crowned (the last one was crowning of Nicholas II in 1886), decrees were announced, and metropolitans and patriarchs were elected at church councils.
