Russian Icon - 4 Saints: St. Nicholas the Wonderworker of Myra, Sts. Martyrs Cyricus and Julitta & St. Grand Prince Alexander Nevsky

The icon depicts four Orthodox Saints: Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker of Myra, St. Martyr Julitta and her son Youth Martyr Cyricus & Grand Prince Alexander Nevsky.

Saint Nicholas of Myra (270 - 343), was a historic 4th-century Saint and Greek Bishop of Myra. Because of the many miracles attributed to his intercession, he is also known as Nikolas the Wonderworker. He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, and thus became the model for Santa Claus. His reputation evolved among the faithful, as was common for early Christian saints.

Saint Cyricus (Kirik) and his mother, Saint Julitta are venerated as early Christian martyrs who were put to death in AD 304. Julitta and her three-year-old son Cyricus had fled to Tarsus and were identified as Christians. Julitta was tortured and Cyricus, being held by the governor of Tarsus, scratched the governor's face and was killed by being thrown down the stairs. Julitta did not weep but celebrated the fact that her son had earned the crown of martyrdom. In anger, the governor decreed that Julitta's sides should be ripped apart with hooks, and then she was beheaded. Her body, along with that of Cyricus, was flung outside the city on the heap of bodies belonging to criminals, but two maids rescued the corpses of the mother and child and buried them in a nearby field. The Old Believers revere Cyricus and Julitta as their patrons, considering themselves just like them, persecuted for their faith. In Russian folk traditions, the Feast Day of Cyricus and Julitta - July 14 (27) was considered to be the middle of summer. The following folk proverb is associated with the saints: “Don't reap on Cyricus’s Day - everything is wet, it’s pouring rain!”

Saint Alexander Nevsky (†1263), proclaimed Saint of the Russian Orthodox Church by Metropolitan Macariy in 1547, was the Prince of Novgorod and Grand Prince of Vladimir during some of the most trying times in Russian history. Commonly regarded as the key figure of medieval Russia, rose to legendary status on account of his military victories over the German and Swedish invaders while employing collaborationist policies toward the powerful Golden Horde.

Russian Icon - Three Saints: St. John the Baptist, St. Martyr Paraskevi of Rome (Friday) & St. Nicholas the Wonderworker of Myra

Saint Nicholas of Myra (270 - 343), was a historic 4th-century Saint and Greek Bishop of Myra. Because of the many miracles attributed to his intercession, he is also known as Nikolas the Wonderworker. He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, and thus became the model for Santa Claus. His reputation evolved among the faithful, as was common for early Christian saints. 

Saint John the Baptist was a Jewish itinerant preacher in the early first century AD who is revered as a significant religious figure in Christianity, Islam, and other faiths. He is called a prophet by all of these traditions and is honored as a saint in many Christian traditions. The Orthodox faithful believe that John was the last of the Old Testament prophets, thus serving as a bridge between that period of revelation and the New Covenant. They also teach that, following his death, John descended into Hades and there once more preached that Jesus the Messiah was coming, so he was the Forerunner of Christ in death as he had been in life. Eastern Orthodox churches will often have an icon of St. John the Baptist in a place of honor on the iconostasis, frequently mentioned during the Divine Services. Every Tuesday throughout the year is dedicated to his memory.

Saint Paraskevi of Iconium (also known as Paraskeva Pyatnitsa) is venerated as a Christian virgin martyr. Her parents were Christian, and Paraskevi was named as such (the name means “Friday” in Greek) because she was baptized on a Friday and because Friday was the day of Christ's Passion. She became a preacher, and according to tradition, converted Emperor Antoninus Pius to Christianity but was subsequently martyred at Iconium during the persecutions of Diocletian. Saint Paraskevi-Pyatnitsa developed a personality and functions of her own on Russian soil. She is traditionally depicted as an ascetic figure wearing the red of martyrdom. She holds an Eastern cross in one hand and a scroll professing her faith in another. In Russia, Paraskeva-Pyatnitsa is the patroness of traders and fairs, and of the Holy Matrimony.
