The Golden Domes of Kiev

Today's offering features two religious videos from Kiev in the Ukraine. St. Michael's Golden-Domed Cathedral is the second largest medieval church in Kiev. It is also one of the three churches in the St. Demetrius Monastery, later known as the St. Michael of the Golden Domes Monastery.

The Lavra Monestary (also known as the Kiev Monastery of the Caves), is an ancient cave monastery in Kiev. It was founded in 1051 by monks Anthony and Theodosius, and has become an important centre of Orthodox Christianity.

Currently, the Kiev Pechersk Lavra also serves as the residence of Metropolitan Volodymyr (Viktor Sabodan), the head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
