IPTC INFO
CaptionIn 1941 the threat of the Nazi invasion caused the Madonna of Philerimos to be sent from Belgrade Serbia to the Orthodox Monastery of Ostrog near Niksic in Montenegro. The Orthodox monastery of Ostrog is one of the most frequently visited on the Balkans. It is visited by believers from all parts of the world either individually or in groups. It represents the meeting place of all three confessions: the Orthodox the Catholics and the Muslims because it is believed that the enshrined body of Saint Basil of Ostrog makes miracles work. According to the stories of pilgrims by praying by his body many have been cured and helped in lessening the difficulties in their lives.The Monastery of Ostrog Serbian Cyrillic: Манастир Острог; Tr. Manastir Ostrog is a monastery of the Serb Orthodox Church placed against an almost vertical background high up in the large rock of Ostroška Greda in Montenegro. It is dedicated to Saint Basil of Ostrog Sveti Vasilije Ostroški. From the monastery a superb view of the Bjelopavlići plain can be seen. Ostrog monastery is the most popular pilgrimage place in Montenegro. The Monastery was founded by Vasilije the Metropolitan Bishop of Herzegovina in the 17th century. He died there in 1671 and some years later he was sainted and proclaimed a miracle-worker. His body is enshrined in a reliquary kept in the cave-church dedicated to the Presentation of the Mother of God to the Temple. The present-day look was given to the Monastery in 1923-1926 after a fire which had destroyed the major part of the complex. Fortunately the two little cave-churches were spared and they make the essential value of the whole monument.
