Does anyone know what writing this is?

Its from a Serbian Orthodox Reskovica monastery, you can look it up on Google maps, this monastery also has other strange things not common in other Orthodox monastery (ive been to a dozen, but not in this one) like: hebrew writing above the icon of the Theotokos (its usually serbian or greek), a big cross near the central icon unlike any other ive seen, in one pic it says ring a bell when you get to the monastery (thats forbidden i think), and some explanation that the Serbian cross comes from an ancient Serbian city in Anatolia in the 8th century BC

      Probably some nonsense stylized to look like Proto-Sinaic, Phoenician or Paleo-Hebrew.

        Yeah ok but that doesnt make any sense because its an Orthodox church, if ti were anything else i would agree. I havent seen anything like this anywhere else, not in regular churches, monasteries, on mt Sinai, Mt Athos, Holy Land etc and i think its against the rules. And another strange thing, the man who is the hegumen of the monastery has said he was on mt Sinai for a couple of years and returned to Serbia to rejuvenate the sinaitic fathers tradition, so idk why would he let this happen

          Ill post some more pics of the monastery and explain what it says. This is the cross whose proportians are identical with the True Cross of Christ

            This says “ring the church bell when you get to the monastery”, i read in a review its for the monks to know someone is visiting and to open the church, bit i think thats heretical

            And the last one says “this kind of cross existed in the ancient Serbian city of Sirbin - former Lycian capital in Asia minor in the 8th century BC”. The rest is the same as any other Orthodox monastery i think

    Look like proto-Sinatic script mixed with paleo-Hebrew

      Looks more like Vinca writing, could be they believe Serbs are descendants from the Vinca culture, but i think this kind of behavior is heretical

      it may be a pseudo-inscription.

      Like false, made up? That would be even stranger, why would they put that up in a monastery? The Orthodox dont joke around like the others, thats why this is so strange, if im able ill visit the monastery and see for myself (its a 2h drive from where i live)

      I can ask my friends who are priests. But it would take a few days to get an answer. If I get anything I will make a new thread if old one is deleted.

      Sure, thanks, but why few days though, you're not sending them a telegram lol. Also im curious how do you have a couple of friends who are priests, did a couple of them just decide to become priests?

        I don't know about orthodox attitudes but making up fake hebrew or arabic "writing" and adding it to paintings in order to suggest erudition was a relatively widespread practice in the west.

          First time i heard about this, interesting, can you give me some examples? As for the Orthodox view its basically "we do things like we did them" and those things are defined by the 7 ecumenical councils, the last was held in 787 AD

      Psuedo- Phoenician.

      >paleo-Hebrew
      Hebrew is medieval. Before that is Aramaic, before that is Canaanite/Phoenician.

        And you can tell it's supposed to be Phoenician because it has the Carthaginian idol-man figure, it looks like a head and two upright arms.

          So can you or anyone else decipherer what is says? I imagine it has to do with something about Jesus but its still kinda strange for it to be in an Orthodox church

            Every semitic language is inherently racist. I wouldn't bother.

            They're expressions of racial supremacism. They're never intended for outsiders or general users.

            Because the OT was originally written in Greek and the NT is written in Latin. That's why Abraham doesn't kill his son when he is ordered to. If it were a semitic story he would have. It's a Greek subversion of Canaanite myth.

            False.
            It's an exeption, yes, but it's still a semitic myth.

            No it isn't. Even Moses founding Zion is just a Greek city-state ktisis. Gideon's 300 is a reference to Spartans.
