Photos of the 12th c. frescoes of St Cyril Monastery, in Kiev

 

August 9, 2018

Today we visited St Cyril Monastery on top of a hill on the north side of Kiev.  It dates from the 12th century.  The frescoes date from as early as the 12th century.  This first piece is the most dramatic.  It is so clean and bright that I can not imagine it is from the 12th century.
