Небольшие иконы и иконки

Travel Orthodox icons have a rich history in Russia. As early as the 12th century, pilgrims wore pectoral icons in order to preserve the possibility of daily prayer. Later, small travel icons were used by the Orthodox faithful to serve as amulet-like protection from the calamities of travel. Orthodox Russians would leave home on a journey without a special to them travel icon in their possession. Special small icons depicting a patron saint, St. George the Victorybearer, or a Guardian Angel were given by families to soldiers being sent to war. Others were purchased by pilgrims during a quest to one of many Holy places and distant monasteries housing relics of highly venerated Orthodox saintly monks such as Sts. Zosima and Sabbatius, founders of the Solovki monastery far in the Russian North, another monastery founder St. Sergius of Radonezh, a beloved by people hermit St. Seraphim of Sarov canonized in 1903, and a stoic monk St. Niles of Stolbensk.

Many of the icons are clad by richly worked covers of precious silver and their panting is showing an amazing level of detail. Nowadays, travel icons are favored by both the faithful and collectors due to their intimate size and moderate cost.

Маленькая иконка - Ангел Хранитель и Св. Евдокия (Палех)

In Orthodoxy, a Guardian Angel is a type of angel that is assigned at birth to protect and guide a particular person. Each human has a guardian angel who stands before the face of the Lord. This guardian angel is not only a friend and a protector, who preserves from evil and who sends good thought; the image of God is reflected in the creature—angels and men—in such a way that angels are celestial prototypes of men. Guardian angels are especially our spiritual kin. Scripture testified that the guardianship and direction of the elements, of places, of peoples, of societies, are confined to the guardian angels of the cosmos, whose very substance adds something of harmony to the elements they watch over.

Saint Eudocia (Eudokia) was a Samarian woman who lived in Heliopolis of Phoenicia (present-day Baalbek, Lebanon). She was a very beautiful pagan and garnered her wealth by attracting wealthy lovers. Eudokia learned about Christianity from a monk by the name of Germanos and asked him if she, too, could be saved from Judgment. Germanos instructed her to remain alone in her chamber for one week, fasting and praying. Eudokia followed his instructions, and at the end of the week, she had a vision about the Archangel Michael that assured her of Christ's love for all people. At age 30, Eudokia commissioned the building of a monastery near Heliopolis and dispensed much of her wealth in various charitable projects. She rejected all of her suitors, and when one persistent suitor named Philostratus was struck down because of his persistence, Eudokia prayed for him until he recovered and then converted to Christianity. Eudokia persuaded many pagans to convert to Christianity and, by her actions, angered Roman officials who had her beheaded in 107 AD.

Маленькая иконка в серебряном окладе - Усекновение Главы Св. Иоанна Предтечи

Saint John the Baptist was a Jewish itinerant preacher in the early first century AD who is revered as a major 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, and he is frequently mentioned during the Divine Services. Every Tuesday throughout the year is dedicated to his memory.

According to the Tradition, Herod's daughter Herodias danced before Herod, who was so pleased that he offered her anything she asked for in return. When the girl asks her mother what she should request, she is told to demand the head of John the Baptist. Reluctantly, Herod orders the beheading of John, and his head is delivered to her, at her request, on a plate. (Mark 6:17–29).
