Suggest to rename to the Church of Intercession upon Nerl and rephrase a bit:

Church of Intercession upon Nerl River (Russian: Покрова на нерли, Pokrova na Nerli) is one of the best known in the world Russian churches. It is situated at the confluence of small Nerl River and Klyazma River in Bogolyubovo, near Vladimir. Listed among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The church was built in 1165 of white stone, has one dome and four columns in the interior. The walls are covered with carvings. The church is dedicated to the Orthodox holiday of the Intercession of the Holy Virgin (Russian: Pokrov).

  • Please, do so, it would be nice. I don't really know how to call all these 'churches upon something'. But certainly your variant sounds better. Arseni 18:05, 31 August 2005 (UTC)
Will do, Arseni. --Barbatus 18:19, August 31, 2005 (UTC)
I oppose the move besause: a) the rivernames are preceded by articles in English; b) because the Britannica 2004 and other reputable sources list the church as "Church of the Intercession on the Nerl". We discussed this issue upon KNewman's talk page back in July. --Ghirlandajo 18:42, 31 August 2005 (UTC)
Also, by checking "What links here", you will discover some unfixed double redirects. --Ghirlandajo 19:37, 31 August 2005 (UTC)

Comparisons[edit]

Whereas St Demetrius Cathedral has been compared to a warrior, the Intercession Church has been likened to a weeping mother.

Compared by whom/and or where? Incomplete. Truthseeker 85.5 15:01, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
