Old talk[edit]

This text from the article is meaningless. Some context must have been removed. Who is this text referring to?

"golden age" is the of gold instead. He resolved that the unearned gold was the devil's gift and decided to spend it on building a church, beautiful within and without.

Google finds this text is from http://www.bookrags.com/wiki/Kostroma and is **very** similar to the wikipedia text. Is the text on this website simply a (correct) echo of an earlier version of the wikipedia article, or has the wikipedia article been copied wholesale from this site?

The only city church that survives from the 17th-century "golden age" is the Resurrection church on the Lowlands (Russian: церковь Воскресения на Дебре). As the story goes, the church was commissioned by one merchant who ordered in England ten barrels of dye but received ten barrels of gold instead. He resolved that the unearned gold was the devil's gift and decided to spend it on building a church, beautiful within and without.
