Cathedral of St. Alexander Nevski by Garfield
Built to celebrate the liberation of Bulgaria from centuries of Ottoman domination, the Cathedral of St. Alexander Nevski in Sofia has aroused only scant interest among art historians both inside and outside the country. In recent years, the general disinterest surrounding this monument can be ascribed to the political climate in Bulgaria after the Second World War; for almost half a century the militant atheism of the Communist regime stifled the religious feelings of the Bulgarian people, forcing believers underground.
