Historical Details

Build - Founding Year:
Church of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul Tylovyl-Pelga of the Vavozhsky district is one of the few temples in Udmurtia that survived the terrible 20th century in complete safety. A Christian who enters these ancient walls is immediately seized by the spirit of prayer, the heritage of many previous generations. Parish with. Tylovyl-Pelga was opened by the decision of the Holy Synod on July 19 (31), 1849. At that time, the parish included villages that were previously part of the parishes of the villages of Vavozh and Sushinsky. In 1916, it included: s. Tylovyl-Pelga, the village of Orlovka, the village of Vampuso, the village of Isopelga, the village of Novaya Zhuya, the village of Ozhgi-Pelga, the village of Nyurpote, the village of Russian Spit, the village of Mishtanka, the village of Kochashgurt, the village of Old Kaksi, Izoil, village Berlud, post. Alexandrovsky, post. Petrovsky, the village of Gybdan, the village of Lower Kuso-Kaksi, the village of Upper Kuso-Kaksi, the village of Staraya Zhuya, the village of New Kaxi. The first wooden church in the village was built in 1851 with one throne in the name of the holy apostles Peter and Paul. In 1859, at the expense of the Yelabuga merchant, a well-known philanthropist, Fyodor Grigorievich Chernov, the construction of a stone church with three altars began: the main one was in the name of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul; the right one is in honor of the Entry into the Temple of the Most Holy Theotokos, the left one is in honor of the Three Hierarchs: Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian and John Chrysostom. The project developer of the new stone church was the Vyatka provincial architect Solovkin Ivan Timofeevich, who also owns the Holy Trinity Church with. Varzi-Yatchi, the temple of the three saints in the village. Yezhevo, Yukamensky district, restructuring of the Ascension-Preobrazhensky Cathedral in the city of Glazov and participation in the project of the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in the city of Vyatka. By the way, 2016 is a jubilee year for the temple: exactly 155 years ago, on October 9, 1861, the main altar was consecrated. A year earlier, on September 25, 1860, side altars were consecrated. In 1868, a parish guardianship was opened, and the following year, a parochial school. Since 1904 the priest Pyotr Vasilyevich Krasnoperov has taught at this school free of charge. He created a school choir, expanded the building. Anna Kiznertseva, who graduated from special courses at the Moscow Craft Council, taught peasant girls the secrets of knitting, stitching and embroidery. For her pedagogical and artistic talent, she was awarded a silver medal. On February 21, 1911, the parishioners of the church in the village of Tylovyl-Pelga, Malmyzhsky district, decided at a gathering to expand their church. In a report dated April 3, 1911 addressed to "His Grace, His Grace Philaret, Bishop of Vyatka and Slobodsky", it is written: "The parish church of St. Tylovyl-Pelga is divided into two parts: a cold temple with one aisle and a warm one with two aisles. In recent years, a warm temple, especially during great holidays, as well as during Lent, cannot accommodate all the worshipers, and therefore the need to expand the temple has long been felt. On February 27, this 1911, the parishioners decided to expand their church by adding to the cold church and transferring both altars from the warm church to these extensions. In addition, it was decided to connect the cold temple with arches with extensions and a warm temple and introduce wind heating, and in place of the portable thrones, put fixed lecterns surrounded by bars. For which it is proposed to find 2,000 rubles, in addition, parishioners (although not all) undertake to bring 1 ruble per year from the land soul for 5 years, which will amount to a capital of 5,000 rubles. But the plans of the villagers were not realized in this way - the war that began in 1914 did not allow collecting the necessary amount, and the re-planning of the temple had to be postponed. By the way, the layout of the temple is very unusual: after passing through the main entrance, we find ourselves in a winter, warm temple. Here, to the left and to the right, there are two small altars, which are “inscribed” in small rooms in the church building, and not attached to it, as is most often the case. Passing through a narrow gate between these two altars, we find ourselves in a spacious summer temple, in which the main altar is located. The appearance in the temple of a unique shrine is connected with the First World War - the icon of the Mother of God "August Victory", written once in the icon-painting workshop of the Sarapul convent of the Annunciation. The image of the Mother of God and the soldiers praying before Her was created after the war. The miraculous image was given to the temple as a gift from the monastery in the year of the October Revolution - in 1917.
