Spasso- Yakovlevsky Monastery (Спасо-Яковлевский монастырь) (Rostov)

 Spasso- Yakovlevsky Monastery (Спасо-Яковлевский монастырь) (Rostov)

Spasso- Yakovlevsky Monastery was found in 1389 by bishop Saint Jacob (or Yakov or Iakov) in Russian (died 27 November 1392) on the shores of Lake Nero in South- Western part of Rostov. Bishop Jacob was kicked out of the city for granting amnesty to a woman who was destined for execution. Bishop's kindness saved her, but Rostov residents refused to keep Jacob as their spiritual leader. He settled near a spring, constructed a wooden chapel and a small house.

Description of Spasso- Yakovlevsky Monastery

 

Subsequent generations of monks constructed Cathedral of Conception of Saint Anna (Zachatievsky Cathedral) in 1686. Masters from Yaroslavl painted the interior walls and ceiling of the new church. Metropolitan Jonah Sysoevich consecrated the first stone building in Spasso Yakovlevsky Monastery. Additionally Savior Transfiguration Cathedral (Spaso- Preobrazhensky Cathedral) also dates to the same time period.

 

Metropolitan Dmitry of Rostov paid particular interest in development of the monastery. After his death on November 25 1709 he was buried in Zachatievsky Cathedral. After his death Dmitry of Rostov canonized and relics draw thousands of pilgrims annually. Cathedral of Saint Dmitry of Rostov was constructed in 1794- 1802.
