Photographer's Note

The Cathedral church of Novi Sad is dedicated to the Holy Great Martyr George. It was built in baroque style in 1734, during the time of the empress Maria Theresia the patriarch Arsenije IV Jovanovic and the archpriest Visarion Pavlovic. It burnt down during the bombing in 1849. It was rebuilt in 1860-80, and the last reconstruction took place in 1905 thanking to archpriest Mitrofan Sevic, after the project of Mihajl Harminc, the architect from Budapest. New tower with new bells from Budapest was built as well. Twenty-six icons on the iconostasis, two historical paintings above the choir-stalls and the two great icons (on the Godmother's and the archpriest's thrones were made in 1905 by Serbian academic painter Paja Jovanovic, who also supervised the wall decorating. The window vitrages were made by Imre Zseler in Budapest after the drawings of Paja Jovanovic. The wall paintings were made by Stevan Aleksic.

Novosadska saborna (Đurđevska) crkva je bila u gradnji još u toku 1734., a završena je, u baroknom stilu, oko 1740. za vreme vladavine carice Marije Terezije, pod patrijarhom Arsenijem IV Jovanovićem i episkopom Visarionom Pavlovićem. Navodi se da je rađena od kamena i opeke. Stradala je kao i veći deo Novog Sada 1849. Obnovljena je između 1860. i 1880. Današnji izgled definitivno je dobila na Uskrs 1905. po projektu Mihajla Harminca arhitekte iz Pešte, u vreme i zahvaljujući pre svega episkopu Mitrofanu Ševiću. Tada je izgrađen nov visok zvonik sa zvonima naručenim u Budimpešti. Dvadeset i šest ikona na ikonostasu, dve kompozicije iznad pevnica i dve velike ikone na tronovima Bogorodicinom i Arhijerejskom - radio je Paja Jovanović, pod čijim nadzorom je rađena i zidna ornamentika. Vitraže na prozorima je po njegovim nacrtima izradio Imre Zseler iz Budimpešte.
