Slide2:

The Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitória, today known as the Monastery of Batalha, was built as a result of the promise made on the battlefield, by King João I to the Virgin Mary, under the pressure of all that was at stake, to build a monastery if victory were his. The importance of the building of the monastery did not end with the fulfillment of that promise; from the very beginning it also embodied the consecration of King João I as King of Portugal, the symbolic and real personification of a new dynasty, as expressed and legitimised by divine will Unfinished Chapels

(The oldest living Cypress is the Sarv-e-Abarkooh in Iran's Yazd Province. Its age is estimated to be approximately 4,000 years) It is also known for its very durable, scented wood, used most famously for the doors of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City, Rome. (God directed Noah to build the ark from cypress wood and to coat it with pitch inside and out) Although today the cypress tree is associated with sadness and mourning e.g., it is called the Funeral or Graveyard Cypress because it is planted in Mediterranean cemeteries, in ancient times the cypress was a symbol of immortality, symbol of eternity, purity and stability, poise, inner strength and liberty and so is for many people today, a sacred tree

Behind the apse of the Church, in line with the high altar, can be found the Pantheon of King Duarte, more usually known as the Unfinished Chapels, which is built in an octagonal form, with the entranceway on an axis and seven radiating chapels separated by small triangular structures. The construction of the chapels, under the aegis of King Duarte, would have begun in about 1434, during the first year of his reign

Slide37:

The death of King Duarte in 1437 and that of master builder Huguet himself the following year put a stop to the work on the new funereal chapel, which was intended to consolidate King Duarte’s lineage and personal legacy. In the reign of King Manuel, with a view to completing the pantheon, modifications to the initial design were made, enhancing its monumentality. Already in the reign of King João III, the Renaissance balcony, dating from 1533, was placed above the portal but it was only in the 1940s that the Pantheon of King Duarte came to house the twin tomb of the King and his Queen Leonor in the axial chapel tomb of the King Duarte and his Queen Leonor of Aragon tomb of the Joao I and Philippa Duarte I (1391 – 1438), called the Philosopher or the Eloquent, was King of Portugal and the Algarve from 1433 until his death. He was the son of João I de Portugal and Philippa of Lancaster Nuno Alvares Pereira
