Russian Icon - St. Martyress Juliana of Nicomedia, St. Basil the Great & Theodore the Studite

Icon is depicting three Orthodox saints: St. Martyress Juliana of Nicomedia, St. Basil the Great, and Theodore the Studite. Comes framed in a contemporary gilt frame as shown.

Saint Basil the Great Hierarch (known as Basil of Caesarea), was the Greek bishop of Caesarea Mazaca in Cappadocia, Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey) and along with Gregory of Nazianzus, and Gregory of Nyssa is referred to as the Cappadocian Father. He was an influential theologian who supported the Nicene Creed and opposed the heresies of the early Christian church. In addition to his work as a theologian, Basil was known for his care of the poor and underprivileged. Basil established guidelines for monastic life which focus on community life, liturgical prayer, and manual labour and is remembered as a father of communal monasticism in Eastern Christianity.

Saint Juliana of Nicomedia suffered Christian martyrdom during the Diocletian persecution in 304. She was popular in the Middle Ages as the patron saint of sickness.

Theodore the Studite (also known as Theodorus Studita, Saint Theodore of Stoudios, and Saint Theodore of Studium; †826) was a Byzantine Greek monk and abbot of the Stoudios Monastery in Constantinople. He played a major role in the revivals both of Byzantine monasticism and of classical literary genres in Byzantium.
