St Olga, Great Princess of Kiev, and Equal-to-the-Apostles. She was the first ruler of the land of Rus' to convert to Christianity, and was also the grandmother of St Vladimir of Kiev, who established Orthodoxy as the official faith of that land.

COOL!  I'll have to read up on St. Olga!

I love St. Olga but why does she usually look so angry in icons?

Mikhail Nesterov did a beautiful portrait of her:

She does not look angry in those icons! Gosh! Smiley This is reminding me of a psychology class I took and the different descriptions different classmates gave of the same faces (not what the class exercise was supposed to be about, but even more interesting).

That is a beautiful painting you've provided.

Never seen an Orthodox bishop clothed in this fashion. The hat reminds me of a Latin galero and the cassock looks like it has buttons.

Well, there are other representations of him


Anyway, I think it was happening in past that some of Orthodox Hierarchs wore Roman Catholics style cassocks, and Cardinal hats...

I did some more research on it and the hat is not, in fact, a galero. It is a Byzantine hat that was secular in nature, denoting  his rank. He would have worn it over his epanokalimavkion, as depicted there.

That is really interesting that the Serbian Patriarch dressed like that for a time. He looks really awesome, not gonna lie.  Cheesy I like the flared collar. Tongue

Vain existence can never exist, for \\\"unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain.\\\" (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
