Blue Stone Became A Pagan Monument

The employees of STSI have made amendments to the road sign in Pereslavsky district at the request of the Nikitsky Monastery. Earlier the sign mentioned the monastery and the Blue Stone, but as a result, the latter was sealed at the request of the monastery that called the object a “pagan monument”, as Interfax reports.

      “The Church does not object to the existence of the stone itself. The object created by nature and God is not subject to the will of earthly people. But excessive popularization and changing the minds of people – this is not normal. Of course, everyone has the right to religious self-determination. But we have to stick to the golden mean. We need to ask the residents of the city whether they want the Blue Stone or not” – the rural dean of Pereslavl Archpriest Aleksandr Peredernin stated. The Blue Stone is one of the attractions of Pereslavl, it is preserved from the times of paganism.
