All Saints Church in Kulishki

A small wooden temple was built by Prince Donskoy in 1380 on the site where the Church of All Saints on Kulishki is now located in honor of the victory won in the Battle of Kulikovo. Strictly speaking, it was not a temple building, but a tomb erected in memory of the losses, which Rus' suffered fighting for its freedom.The temple was built on the burial site of the soldiers who fell in the Battle of Kulikovo.In the second half of the 16th century, the wooden temple building was demolished, and a stone church was erected in its place, destroying the tomb. incomprehensible events that caused excitement and awe among the inhabitants of Moscow.

In Russian there is a common expression "to hell with Kulichki", meaning an abandoned and very unsafe place.But few people think that we are talking about a real place located in the central part of the capital, where the Moscow River and the Yauza intersect.This expression became common in the 1660s, when churches located in the Moscow region e Kulishki, the appearance of evil spirits was repeatedly noted. It all started during the service, when the parishioners noticed an incomprehensible glow, flickering shadows and flashes of flame under the arch of the church. A dull thump was heard in the walls, icons fell out of the iconostasis. In the annals of the temple, they wrote that a demon, released there by a sorcerer, settled in the church, and he does not give rest day or night, pushes the residents of the parish from their beds, shouting "various nonsense." As usual in the common people, the evil spirit released into the wild was immediately given a name: he was nicknamed Ignashka. The clergy refused to hold services in a temple where evil spirits live, Muscovites had a saying “at the devil in Kulishki”, in which, over time, “kulishki” turned into “kulishki”, and the church gained a bad reputation. In addition, the church, where the evil spirits were wicked, was located on the outskirts, in Kulishki, and in ancient times the swamps in which the evil spirits lived were called "kulichki".

After the appropriate measures were taken by the church authorities, peace and tranquility reigned for several centuries. In the 1930s, the church was closed, they were going to blow it up, but in the end it was transferred to the jurisdiction of the NKVD. Multiple executions were carried out there, as evidenced by the fact that in the early 90s, the remains of the victims were found in church cellars. In memory of the victims of the Soviet regime, a cross was erected near the wall of the church. The Church of All Saints was restored, transferred to the Orthodox Church, and divine services began to be held in it again. And suddenly Ignashka reappeared: during the service, the candles went out, flames began to flare up, icons fell from the iconostasis. Believers are convinced that the priests were unable to completely expel the evil demon, which will disturb the parishioners more than once. According to some experts, the reason for this phenomenon lies in the fact that this church was built on the site where a pagan temple was located in ancient times.

In 1999, the Church of All Saints on Kulishki received the status of the representation of the head of the Alexandrian Orthodox Church, the Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa.
