"Conçue pour rivaliser avec l'Ă©glise Sainte-Sophie de Constantinople, la cathĂ©drale Sainte-Sophie de Kiev symbolise la "nouvelle Constantinople", capitale de la principautĂ© chrĂ©tienne crĂ©Ă©e au XIe siĂšcle dans une rĂ©gion Ă©vangĂ©lisĂ©e aprĂšs le baptĂȘme de saint Vladimir en 988. Le rayonnement spirituel et intellectuel de la laure de Kievo-Petchersk contribua largement Ă  la diffusion de la foi et de la pensĂ©e orthodoxes dans le monde russe aux XVIIe, XVIIIe et XIXe siĂšcles."

"UNESCO World Heritage Toward the end of the tenth century, Vladimir, the Prince of Kiev-recognizing the threat posed by the Vikings to the west and the other Russian territories to the east- -chose to strengthen his ties with the Byzantine Empire by seeking baptism and marrying the sister of the fearsome ruler of Constantinople, Basil II. Vladimir's son, Yaroslav the Wise, consolidated the new alliance by founding Kiev's Cathedral of St. Sophia in 1017 in imitation of, and as a rival to, the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. St. Sophia's crowning glory is a central dome surrounded by twelve others, representing Christ with his apostles, and its interior is similarly magnificent, being decorated with 2,800 square feet (260 sq m) of mosaics and 32,300 square feet (3,000 sq m) of wall paintings. These decorations include glorious interpretations of the Annunciation, the Virgin Mary at Prayer, and the Communion of the Apostles, and there are also paintings of secular scenes, such as bear hunts and feasts. St. Sophia soon became one of the most important buildings in the Eastern Orthodox Church, with the artisans spreading the stylistic features of its decoration throughout the surrounding territories. Fortunately, although the cathedral's exterior suffered during several invasions of the city, restoration work undertaken during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries left the interior almost untouched. The Soviet authorities confiscated the cathedral and planned to demolish it during the 1920s, but relented and instead transformed it into an architectural and historical monument. There have been discussions about returning the building to the Russian Orthodox Church, but the cathedral is still primarily a monument to Kiev's history, rather than a functioning place of worship. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1990."
