Church Sf. Gheorghe Nou
Saint George Voivodal Church in Bucharest is the most important ecclesial foundation of Constantin Brancovan. It was consecrated by Hrisant Nottara, patriarch of Jerusalem, in the presence of Constantin Brancovan and of an assembly of priests in 1707. After Brancovan’s death, 1714, as Anton Maria del Chiaro, his secretary, asserted, the remains of the martyrs were buried in the Assumption Church on the Halki Island. Maria, the prince’s faithful consort, stealthily displaced their remains to this church, because Ahmed III, the sultan who doomed the Brancovans, was still on the throne of the Ottoman Empire.
Church Ramnicu Sarat
The ensemble in Ramnicu Sarat is one of the defining monuments for the Brancovan style, representing a synthesis of Balkan elements, Byzantine and Oriental, with Persian influences, Iraqi decorative motifs and numerous Western loans (predominantly Italian). It corresponds to the Italian Renaissance architecture executed by East-European masters with specific artistic repertoire.
Hurezi Monastery was erected between 1690 and 1693, the great church being consecrated on September 8, 1693. The village which housed it was in possession of the Brâncoveni even before C. Brancoveanu ascended the throne and it is still the largest monastic foundation in Romania, a remarkable achievement of the Brancovan art.
Maxineni Monastery is attested in a solemn charter issued by Matei Basarab in 1640. The building works lasted until 1651 when it was consecrated. Since 1750, it became a metochion of the Saint Panteleimon Hospital of Bucharest.
