Manea Brutaru Church – Wikipedia



The Manea Brutaru Church (Romanian: Biserica Manea Brutaru) is a Romanian Orthodox church situated at 4 Common Constantin Budișteanu in Bucharest, Romania. It’s devoted to Saint Nicholas.

The church used to be in-built 1787 through Manea Brutaru, head of the guild of bakers (brutari), for the contributors of the Popa Radu parish; he changed a small wood church of this identify, in all probability based through a clergyman named Radu. The brand new masonry construction used to be finished on August 15, as famous within the pisanie. In 1798, Prince Constantine Hangerli ordered the development of 2 structures within the courtyard, for housing 80 orphans, each girls and boys. 8 cells have been constructed for this objective in 1801; later within the nineteenth century, a faculty functioned there. The 1838 earthquake seriously broken the church, collapsing its dome. Upkeep have been performed in 1858, together with a recovery of the iconostasis, introduced from a metochion of the Râmnic Diocese. The inner used to be repainted in 1898.[1]

The church is indexed as a historical monument through Romania’s Ministry of Tradition and Spiritual Affairs.[2]
