Frescoes from the Chapel of All Saints, Community of St John the Baptist

The Chapel of All Saints, or ‘Crypt Chapel’, was built and designed as a private funerary chapel for the Community of St John the Baptist. It is situated above the crypt, where Father Sophrony and other members of the community are buried. The subjects for the wall paintings were chosen with the themes of death and resurrection in mind, with the emphasis on resurrection, offering hope in the face of death.

The various themes, all touching on resurrection, are from both from the Old and New Testaments: creation; the Fall and its consequences; the Old Testament readings for Holy Week, most notably Holy Saturday; the resurrection scenes from the New Testament; the appearances of Christ after
his resurrection; the death-less death of the Mother of God; Sisoës’ vision of the world’s vanity at the sight of the grave of Alexander the Great; and the Last Judgment.
