Russian Icon - Saint Julian (Iulian) of Kenomania, Patron of Children

The icon is depicting Iulian of Kenomania kneeling before a lectern or table, holding a child, and gazing up at an icon on the wall of Mary. Rare iconographic subject!

Saint Iulian (Julian) of Kenomania was made a bishop by St. Peter. He went to what is now northern Italy and preached there among the non-Christian population. He is said to have so sympathized with parents who lost a child that he would resurrect dead children and that is how he got the reputation as an advocate of children.
