la Cattolica di Stilo

La Cattolica di Stilo.

Quando si entra all’interno di edifici come la Cattolica di Stilo, si è portati a guardare verso l’alto. Stilo adagiata sulle rocciose pendici del Monte Consolino è dominata da questa piccola gemma dell’arte bizantina, la Cattolica, il suo nome deriva dal termine Greco cattolico.

Tempietto bizantino de La cattolicaLa chiesa è stata costruita inizialmente per servire un nucleo monastico perché il contesto territoriale in cui essa si trova lo consente perfettamente. Nell’area bizantina di Stilo oltre alle laure, c’era bisogno di un luogo di raduno dei monaci, soprattutto nelle giornate di sabato e domenica dove c’era una forte presenza di pubblico che si raccoglieva per le essenziali della vita cristiana. E’ evidente che lei tipo di liturgia che veniva praticata era quello delle feste, ma anche in altri momenti in cui si doveva ricordare cerebrale qualcosa di particolare,  la comunità si ritrovava in prossimità o all’interno della chiesa e veniva celebrata la divina liturgia.

La Cattolica di Stilo, chiesa della calabria Bizantina.

La Cattolica di Stilo per il valore artistico e stato di conservazione e sicuramente la più importante Chiesa della Calabria bizantina. Edificata nel corso dell’XI sec. è costruita con materiali di reimpiego dalla antica città romana di Scolacium per quanto riguarda i mattoni, mentre le colonne sono probabilmente dell’area magnogreca di Kaulonia. Ripropone nella sua struttura lo schema a croce su pianta quadra molto in uso nel mondo greco. Visita l’Isola Bizantina dello Stilaro.

Vacanze tra la natura ed i borghi in Calabria

Isola Bizantina in Calabria

Isola bizantina in Calabria.

Cuore bizantino in Italia, luoghi e attività spirituali dell’Isola bizantina.

La  Calabria è la regione in Italia dove il mondo bizantino è più rappresentato.

Borghi medioevali e aree bizantine.
La particolare ubicazione geografica della Calabria, vicinissima alle coste orientali dell’impero romano d’oriente favorì un flusso di proselitismo da parte di monaci bizantini già dall’anno mille. Le popolazioni che avevano urbanizzato le coste joniche, a causa delle incursioni saracene avevano abbandonato i vecchi luoghi per dare vita a dei borghi a mezza costa e montani tra le Serre calabre. Questa situazione di instabilità diede così un grande impulso al sorgere o allo svilupparsi di borghi come Stilo, Bivongi e Caulonia in questo caso, il cuore dell’Isola Bizantina.
