Orthodox Cerkiew in Pausa, RO

Orthodox Church of Saint Nicholas in the village of Pausa (Biserica de lemn din Păușa)

The wooden church in Păușa of St. Hierarchy Nicholas (Sfântul Ierarh Nicolae) is located in the village of the same name in the Sălaj district, RO and dates back to 1730. The object is on the new list of monuments under the LMI code: SJ-II-m-A-05092.
The church was built on a rectangular plan, with a recessed, pentagonal apse. The outer walls are decorated with a rope motif carved in the beams. The entrance door frames are very richly decorated with rosettes, a rope motif (so-called cords), and geometric motifs. The door frames leading from the women’s gallery to the main nave are decorated with cord borders and geometric patterns and spiral rosettes. On the fragments of the walls, external paintings have been preserved, on which you can recognize scenes from the New Testament, such as the Assumption of the Virgin Mary or Mary surrounded by the Apostles. The church was restored in 1966-1968.
