In the ancient Anchialo /today's Pomorie/ Christianity has been spread since the late I century. According to Church tradition, st. apostle Andrew, on his way for Kiev has crossed by the BlackSea city, which at this time has been a big administrative sea centre in the boundaries of the Romain empire. At the rule of Emperor Diocletian /284 - 305/ from Frigia to the Balkan peninsula arrives st. Sebastiana, she preaches the Gospel in Anchialo and the nearby inhabited places. At this time Anchialo is already a big Church region. Even though the persecutions, from III - IV century, the city has already it's Bishops.

In the V - VI century, Anchialo's Church is proclaimed to be Archibishopric. Christianty is already official religion in Eastern Roman empire - Byzantium. The Church tradition says, that in VII century on that place already was existing a Temple or a Monastery, dedicated to St. Great Martyr George.

At the time of Khan Krum in year 812 Anchialo is captured by the Bulgarians and later after the conversion of Bulgaria to Christianity in year 894 a new Bulgarian Church organization is created. Since the end of XIII century Anchialo's archibishop is honoured with a rank of Metropolitan.

With the invasion of Ottoman / Osman's Turish in Bulgaria the cloister of st. George is probably diminished and deserted. Temporary given to Byzantine's, the city again is Christian until March 1453. In 1453 Anchialo is captured by the Turkish and is being veiled by the night shadow of Ottoman's dominion.

Near the end of XVIII century in Anchialo is settled the Turkish bey Salim, creating a big feudal mansion - farm. According to ancient tradition the bey suffered from painful deadly incurable disease. One night his old agricultural labourer Neno dreamed that in the farm's yard there is flushing Holy Spring with miracle making water. Neno did not give too much significance to his dream, until he became frequently seeing a unearthly beautiful young man, riding on a white horse - saint Great Martyr George who has instructed Neno to dig on a certain place in the yard where he will find a marble icon of st. George's image. Troubled by the dream, he digged secretly on the place as instructed by saint George and found the marble bas-relief icon impicing saint George's the glory bringer. At the same moment he found the marble icon on the same place where he digged, water springed out. The pious Neno told his mastery about his visions and the wonderful way he found the icon and in the bey a hope for healing has emerged.

By Neno's recommendation Selim bay has called for the Bishop of the town, who read over him a prayer and spinkled the bey with the water from the holy spring. Through the holy spring water by God's grace  Selim bay has been miraculously healed. Inspirited by the great miracle, he accepted Christianity and baptized himself with his whole family and built a small chapel (paraklis) dedicated to st. George.

That's how Selim bey give the birth of today's holy cloister. As time passed by he become widowed and accepted monkhood and become the first Abbot of the monastery. He also danated all his land possessions 3 800 decare land to the monastery.

Нов църковен Музей в Двора на Поморийски Манастир
Четвъртък, 04 Септември 2014г.
There are no translations available.


След дълги перипетии около реализиране идеята на игумена на поморийския манастир „Св.Георги Победоносец” архимандрит Иеротей  за експониране на църковните светини, който са част от последните 250 годишната "съвременна" история на манастира отвори врати нова изложбена зала. Тя е разположена в партерния етаж на светата обител.

Многобройните гости на единствения действащ по българското Черноморие мъжки манастир някакси неусетно се потапят в една друга атмосфера, съхранила оригинални църковни пособия  и отделни фрагменти от бита на населението от Община Поморие.

В полумрака всред автентична обстановка причудливо се осветяват отделните експонати, създавайки неотразимо впечатление у посетителите. Експонатите се  държат зад специално създадени за целта стъклени витрини далече от хорската съблазън и надежно защитени със съвременно охранителна система.

Първите стъпки по създаване на уникален църковен музей в са налице, идеята само по себе си е достойна да заеме своето място, като център за християнско образование. В Последните години Манастирът се утвърждава като активен християнски център, а от такива действително има нужда в напоследък обезверения ни народ

Декуратор на новата изложбена зала е видната бургаска изкуствоведка Пенка Захариева-Седларска, ексдиректор на Бургаската художествена галерия „Петко Задгорски“.

Амбициите на докторанта по богословия архимандрит Иеротей заслужават адмирации по реализацията на неговото Богуугодното му дело.


Знаем, че Християнството е основата на българската държавност и невидимата нишка съхранила онези доброделите върху които се крепи съвременна България и следователно, ако искаме и в бъдеще да имаме държава сме длъжни да съхраним Вярата и християнските си ценности.

С тази нова културна придобивка в Поморие, манастирът  наред с провеждането на неделно училище се утвърждава като активен християнски просветителен център.
