Biserica de rit vechi Nașterea Maicii Domnului Botoșani (RO)
The Old rite Church Birth of Virgin Mary (EN)

  • The current church building was built on the site of an old wooden chapel in 1853.
  • The Orthodox Christian Church of the Old Rite has some elements common to the other Orthodox churches, but also a number of peculiarities.
  • Generally, the shape of the Lipovan church approaches the forms of the Orthodox churches, with the semicircular altar oriented in the East direction. The particular element from the beginning appearing in a Lipovan church is determined by the presence of the eight-pointed cross (some of which are called eight corners).
