Densus Church, Romania

Historical Orthodox Church Densus near Hunedoara, Romania

Visit the church Densus in Transylvania, which is covered with mystery and legends. Densus, "spiritual center of the world", between heaven and history. The oldest church in Romania, where religious services are officially held today, in Byzantine traditions, is located in Densus, in the Hunedoara region. The Church of St. Nicholas, located 10 km from the town of Hateg, is the strangest monument in the country of Hategului.

The famous monument was built of stone polished by the Romans 2,000 years ago. George Galinescu (historian, writer, one of the most prominent Romanian literary critics) said: "The quaint church is made of marble and stone, collected in Sarmizegetusa. This "quaint church" is built of massive stone blocks and marble, using columns and statues collected on the territory of the Roman colony of Ulpia Traiana Augusta Dacica Sarmizegetusa, which is located 10 km from Densus.

The history of the church, as some historians and authors suggest, began even before the Romans occupied Dacia. There is evidence that a Christian religious sanctuary existed in Densus long before the arrival of the Traian legions and there are allegations that before the arrival of the Romans there was a temple dedicated to Zalmoxis, which the Getae worshiped as the only god. According to Herodot, these most courageous and fair of the Thracians considered themselves immortal, because by their faith they do not die, but go after death to their god Zalmoxis.

For a long time, various kinds of research were carried out both in the neighborhood and on the territory of the church, but nevertheless the church monument continues to remain a mystery and keeps secrets. According to studies, the church has undergone numerous changes in its long history. The construction of blocks, river stones and materials from the former Roman capital in the province of Dacia - ceramics with Roman inscription, capitals, tombstones, sewer pipes - all this gives an unusual aspect that attracts, surprises and delights.
