Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Epiphany or Theophany Monastery (better known as Bratsky, or Brotherhood Monastery) is an Orthodox monastery in Podil, Kiev, Ukraine, in the vicinity of Kontraktova Square. Its history has been interwoven with that of Mohyla Academy which now occupies the remaining monastery buildings. The monastery is supposed to have been founded by Patriarch Jeremias II of Constantinople. Patriarch Theophanes III of Jerusalem had it reorganized as a "brotherhood school," hence the name. Its benefactors included Petro Sahaidachny (whose tomb was on the grounds), Petro Mohyla (who raised its status to that of collegium), and Ivan Mazepa (who asked Osip Startsev to design the five-domed katholikon in a style known as Mazepa Baroque).show more
