Russian Icon - Saint John the Baptist from the Deesis Row

Russian Icon - Saint John the Baptist from the Deesis Row

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.

ca. 1800 Spectacular Spanish silver reliquary of St. Narcissus (Narcís), Bishop Martyr of Girona & Miracleworker of the Flies

A spectacular gilt silver reliquary of high craftsmanship dating to the time of the Napoleonic wars (ca. 1800) and containing a significant first-class relic of St. Narcissus, Bishop and Martyr of Girona. The design of the reliquary strongly resembles the tomb of St. Narcissus in the Basilica of St. Felix in Girona. The bone relic is housed in a small glass-sided casket affixed in the center of the reliquary and surmounted by a Bishop's mitre and crossed Bishops staff and the palm branch indicating the Martyrdom. The reliquary is hallmarked with a stamp of Antonio Desoy from Genoa (Italy) active in Girona between 1795 and 1809. The base of the reliquary is decorated with a count's crown with the initials "CDP" and inscription "A LOS S res" (To the señores), indicating that the reliquary was made as a gift to the Count and Countess whose monogram appears on the reliquary. The reliquary was most likely produced at the time of the Battle of Girona (1808) during the the Napoleonic wars and had been a part of the famous collection of Cristóbal Balenciaga Eizaguirre, the founder of the Fashion House of Balenciaga in Spain.
