Икона - Св. Иоанн Богослов в молчании

The icon depicts Holy Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian in silence. The Apostle John is shown in the later years, as the elder “Theologian” holding the Gospel in his hands. To his left, an angel is shown whispering the Gospel into John’s ear, yet the Apostle does not look to him but casts his eyes down in contemplation. To his right - an eagle, an animal seen as the king of the birds, traditionally symbolizing St. John. The Saint’s right hand is raised up, making the sign of the cross over his mouth, guarding it lest he was to say something from his own imagination: the great Evangelist is reduced to silence.
