Saints Apostles Peter and Paul
(first years AD-67), celebrated on the 29th of June.
Reason for Conception:
The Saints belong, exclusively and by definition, to the religious world, thus becoming authentic symbols of the Christian spirituality. Although they transform graphically and visually the essence of the Divinity, icons carry in themselves the aura of a long ago scrutinized, never penetrated symbolism. Therefore, the icon becomes an allegory of ancestral symbols, millenary kept in the mysteries of Divinity. Traditional - Byzantine and Christian Orthodox – the simbolistic power is shown through a great material wealth, both in content and form: the clothes are of "kings"; materials like gold, silver, precious stones abound; the colors are bright - the touch of brilliance and splendor points to Divinity.
But here, the materials are simple / basic: wood, clay, metal, stone, etc., and the effect of colors is given, in its majority, by the wealth and beauty of the popular Romanian motifs.
Their presence is alleged in the religious rituals and the sacred - the Church for example, but in a warm home, in a thematic exhibition or even in a (pre)school manual with educational values, their ethereal presence christianizes the secular and profane through universal symbolics.
Books with explanations:
Saints who, having to redeem much: Peter – the formal denial of Jesus; Paul – the persecution of the Church of Jesus. They have become the most important Apostles and Missionaries of Jesus, and are considered the main founders of the Christian Church as an institution. While they were in prison, although they’ve been tortured, they confessed Jesus as the Son of God – God who can forgive any mistake. Therefore, they were declared protectors of the penitentiary system in Romania. They are on the frontal of a Church with Romanian specific architectural motifs.
