"Icon - The image of the Cover of the intercession of the Holy Virgin The history of the Orthodox celebration"

Lecture online

The conference will be focused on one of the most important celebrations of modern orthodoxy, born in ancient Russia, the Intercession, from its full name: "Memory of the Appearance of the Intercession of the Mother of God and the Virgin Mary". The origin of this feast and its description by the chroniclers of Ancient Greece and Byzantium will be discussed. We will discover how this festival spread in 12th century all across Russia, as shown by icon paintings and architectural monuments. Many customs and beliefs related to this day still exist today and are guidelines in our lives. We will discuss all this at our conference.

Dear participants, please send us your questions and stories related to the celebration of "The Protection of the Blessed Virgin".

We will be happy to answer your questions and share our knowledge.  

The conference will be held by Olga Vladislavovna Kalinina, professor of art history, world art culture, drawing, painting and composition.
