Biserica Densus – Densus church

In general, in Romania putem spune ca daca ai vazut o biserica, le-ai vazut pe toate. Acelasi stilarhitectural, aceleasi picturi, aceleasi icoane, acelasi lucru. Binenteles exista cateva exceptii, biserici care ies din evidenta prin ceva anume si devin unice.

Astazi o sa va spun despre o biserica care este absolut unica la noi in tara. Biserica Densus, este construita intr-un stil aparte, ridicata la origine ca templu pagan ce a fost convertit in timp intr-un lacas de cult ortodox. Expertii se contrazic constant asupra anului in care a fost contruita aceasta biserica si asta deoarece in componenta biserici au fost folosite multe pietre si piese aduse de la Ulpia Traiana Sarmisegetuza. Deasemenea la constructia originala au fost adaugata constant bucati noi, facand datarea bisericii imposibila.

Unele legende spun ca acest lacas de cult era in picioare inca din vremea dacilor si ca dupa ce romanii i-au cucerit pe daci, acestia le desecrau templele pentru a le distruge moralul. Unul din modurile de a desecra templele era ca soldatii romani sa intre in biserica calare, distrugand tot ce se poate si lasand excremente peste tot. Ca raspuns, dacii au asezat peste intrare un bloc de piatra urias, fortand soldatii romanii nu numai sa coboare de pe cal, dar si sa intre aplecati, intr-o postura umila.. Daca este adevarat sau nu, nu pot spune, dar am vazut acel bloc de piatra 🙂

Intre legenda si adevar, ne-am ales cu o biserica superba si unica ce merita vizitata de toata lumea 🙂

ENGLISH:

Generally, in Romania, we can say that if you’ve seen a church, you’ve seen ‘em all. Same style, same paintings, same thing. Of course there are exceptions, churches that stand out through architecture or paintings.

Today i will tell you about a church that is absolutely unique in our country. The church Densus is built in an unique style, raised as a pagan temple that was later converted. Experts keep arguing about the age of the church, because for the construction of this church were used many stones from the ruins of Ulpia Traiana Sarmisegetuza. Also many parts have been added to the original construction, making dating the church impossible.

Some legends say that this place of worship was built during the time of the ancient Dacia and the after the Romans conquered them, they started desecrating their temples to bring down morale. One of the ways they would do that was for soldiers to go intro the church mounted on their horses, destroying everything and leaving horse droppings everywhere. In order to prevent them, dacians builders placed a huge block of marble over the entrance so that not only would soldiers be forced to dismount, but also bow low in order to enter humbled. I know not i it is true or false, but i did see the marble block 🙂

Between legend and truth, we have now a superb and unique church that is worth a visit. 🙂
