The Juni?s Chapels





     



The chapels of Juni are known since the remotest times. The first one has been erected in 1292; there are 89 such of wood or stone crosses, worshipping and gathering places for the Romanians living in the oldest neighbourhood of Brasov. Considered symbols of the Resurrection, they say those tabernacles also symbolize specific features of the spiritual life of the people.
The chapels were usually erected on crossroads and actually watch the quarter. Votive lights illuminate them during the night; the travellers believe they also guide them to the right road.

Sacred Monuments
The ancient inhabitants of Schei considered them as sacred monuments. Their impressive number testifies the religious feelings of the people. On various religious feasts, the priests consecrate the crosses; according to some superstitions, the chapels also banish evil spirits.

Chapels and Flags
Almost all the ancient chapels of Scheii Brasovului were seriously damaged by the time: therefore, they were included in a rehabilitation program, initiated by the County Council. The Juni cherish those monuments and gather around many of them during their traditional feasts.
The County Council president, Aristotel Cancescu, met Juni several times to establish the measures meant to preserve the chapels from degradation. Another purpose of the meetings was the replacement of the old damaged flags of the seven Juni groups by new ones.
