Saints Michael and Gabriel Church

Satu Mare, judetul Satu Mare

Address1 Decembrie 1918, 4


Located on the site of the old Romanian church in Satu Mare, the monumental building of the Roman Cathedral was built between 1932-1937. The style of the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel Church is inspired by traditional Romanian architecture, namely with a dome of pendants, with a narthex flanked by two side towers, with monumental portal of entry, marked by an archivolt with rich decorated profiles and with rope moulding waist and stalks of acanthus.

The structure of the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel Church is the following: inside there was a central nave with two side ships, and one has four openings bounded by double columns. Above the narthex there is a balcony. The capitals of all the columns are made in the “ Brancoveanu style”. The construction plans of architects were elaborate by Victor Smigelschi and G.P. Liteanu and the interior painting was made by Schnell and Profeta brothers.

The persons who visited over time this church, interested in the collection of the old books, icons and art objects, were the patriots scribes and the leading representatives of the Romanian national movement: Peter Bran, John Mark, Constantine Lucaciu, dr. Vasile Lucaciu.

In this monument there is a collection of ecclesiastical art and hand made books from the '80s. This collection represents the cultural and historical valuables that are in the ownership units within the Orthodox worship of Satu Mare. It is found in the basement of the cathedral in a well equipped area and consists of works of art and of old Romanian books.

There are found within this collection more than 40 icons on glass and wood, among which we remind the seven icons from the wooden church in Corund, dating from the second half of the eighteenth-century century, and four imperial icons from the church of Oar, from the same period. The 500 Romanian books represent the bibliophile value, remarkable in this sense are “Cazania lui Varlaam” (Iasi, 1693), “Chiriacodromul from Balgrad” (1699), the prints of Antim Ivireanul.
