In the cathedral the congregation turns to face east for prayer. People come not face toward Jerusalem, and to the east, t. E. In the direction of the sunrise. This direction for prayer, of course, inherited from the ancient pagan sun worship. In the Christian religion semantic accent has changed a bit. Christ has many of the attributes of the solar deity, but he also is the Messiah who came in the past and will return in the future - another analogy with the death and rebirth of the sun god of the ancient myths. East - is the direction of sunrise, the sun's rebirth and the coming of light. The mystery religions east symbolizes spiritual enlightenment and divinity. "
