Russian Icon - Christ Pantocrator

Russian Icon - Christ Pantocrator

Christ Pantocrator refers to a specific depiction of Christ. The most common translation of Pantocrator is "Almighty" or "All-powerful". In this understanding, Pantocrator is a compound word formed from the Greek words for "all" and the noun "strength" (κρατος). This is often understood in terms of potential power; i.e., ability to do anything, omnipotence. The iconic image of Christ Pantocrator was one of the first images of Christ developed in the Early Christian Church and remains a central icon of the Eastern Orthodox Church. In the half-length image, Christ holds the Gospels in his left hand and makes the gesture of blessing with his right. The Gospels are opened on Matthew 11:28 “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Russian Icon - the Seeker of the Perished Mother of God

Russian Icon - the Seeker of the Perished Mother of God

The miraculous icon of the Seeker of the Lost Mother of God (sometimes known as the Seeker of the Perished) became known in Russia in the 18th century and is attributed to its rescue from damnation of a monk in Asia Minor. The name of the icon refers not only to those who are dying, but to those whose souls are in danger of spiritual death. The Queen of Heaven sends down help and support for all: “Seek us who are perishing, O Most Holy Virgin, chasten us not according to our sins, but as you are merciful in your love for mankind, have pity, deliver us from hell, sickness and necessity, and save us” (Troparion, Tone 4)

ca. 1859 Russian Icon - The Protecting Veil (Pokrov) of the Most Holy Mother of God in silver frame

ca. 1859 Russian Icon - The Protecting Veil (Pokrov) of the Most Holy Mother of God in silver frame

The Protection (Pokrov) of the Most Holy Mother of God is one of the most beloved Feast days on the Orthodox calendar commemorated on October 1 celebrating the appearance of the Virgin Mary in Constantinople in the 10th century at the time when the people in the city were threatened by the Barbarian invasion. Saint Andrew, the Holy Fool with his disciple Saint Epiphanius, and a group of people, saw the Mother of God, Saint John the Baptist, and several other Saints and Angels during a vigil in the Church of Blachernae, nearby the city gates. The Mother of God approached the center of the church, knelt down and remained in prayer for a long time with her face drowned in tears. Then she took her veil off and spread it over the people as a sign of protection. After the appearance of the Mother of God, the danger was averted and the city was spared from bloodshed and suffering. On the icon, the Theotokos is depicted standing on a cloud in aureola of the Divine light holding her veil surrounded by apostles, saints, and two angels behind her. Below are Saint Romanos the Melodist, surrounded by Saint Emperor Leo VI, Saint Empress Zoë, Saint Epiphanius and Saint Andrew the Fool.
