About Dormition of the Theotokos
August 15th is a very important religious public holiday in Cyprus. The feast day of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary is celebrated on August 15th. It is also called the Feast of the Dormition and is a religious holiday celebrating the miracle of Virgin Mary who in bodily form ascended into Heaven after her death. The feast day is celebrated on August 15th of every year. Theotokos was the mother of God. Ceremonies take place throughout the country including at the monastery in the Troodos Mountains. The day of the death of the Mother of God is called the Dormition in the Orthodox Church as for her body did not know corruption after death, but together with her soul was taken up into heaven. The foundation for the feast of the Dormition is to be found in a sacred tradition of the Church dating from apostolic times. Assumption is important to many Christians as the Virgin Mary's heavenly birthday. The Assumption is dogmatically defined.
