 Our Description

This is a reproduction of a truly great treasure of Russia, this famous and beloved icon which is attributed to St. Luke, who it is said painted it on a board from the table on which the Virgin, her Son, St. Joseph the Betrothed and his children would take their meals.  Taken in 450 to Constantinople, then to Kiev in the early 12th c., she came to Vladimir in 1155.  Repainted several times, only the faces remain original.

This reproduction print is mounted on a wood plank as is traditional for the Byzantine style.

Approximately 2 3/4in. x 4 1/4in.

Profile
Born to pagan Greek parents, and possibly a slave. One of the earliest converts. Physician, studying in Antioch and Tarsus. Probably travelled as a ship's doctor; many charitable societies of physicians are named for him. Legend has that he was also a painter who may have done portraits of Jesus and Mary, but none have ever been correctly or definitively attributed to him; this story, and the inspiration his Gospel has always given artists, led to his patronage of them. He met Saint Paul at Troas, and evangelized Greece and Rome with him, being there for the shipwreck and other perils of the voyage to Rome, and stayed in Rome for Paul's two years of in prison. Wrote the Gospel According to Luke, much of which was based on the teachings and writings of Paul, interviews with early Christians, and his own experiences. Wrote a history of the early Church in the Acts of the Apostles. Martyr.
Born
at Antioch
Died
c.74 in Greece; some stories say he was martyred, others not; relics at Padua, Italy
