Also, are the three Persons emanating from the Tetragrammaton? Modalism and name worship all in one icon!

There has to be an icon that sums up all wacky Russian sects in one. Someone please find it.

In the icon where he is between Sts. Alexander Nevsky and Dmitri Donskoi, it's like they're taking him in for questioning. They probably have some questions for the artist as well. One might think them less terrifying than Stalin, but one would be wrong.

Oooooh, that's a tall order, even for LBK's forensic abilities. Only because the gamut of wacky Russian sects covers such a wide range. Russians never do anything by halves.  ;)

I am all for freedom of expression. I am also all for putting Robert Lentz in jail forever, with no painting supplies.

One of my favorite "Schlock Icons"


Origen of Alexandria
Who drew (not wrote, because it is uncanonical) this Image?

The artist is William Hart McNichols, a Roman Catholic Jesuit priest, and arguably the best-known protege of Robert Lentz. He has said this about his mentor: "Lentz is regarded as one of the foremost authorities on icons today."

Says it all, really. The bulk of McNichols' work is no less egregious and blasphemous than Lentz's. McNichols has not only painted an "icon" of a declared heretic, but seems to be unaware that Origen was an avowed iconoclast. Oh, the irony!  :P :P ::)

Origen was an Iconoclast?

Ironically, the "Orthodox" icon of Stalin (the one the mustache-less man, probably mustacheless out of reverence for Stalin, is holding) does more to elevate Stalin to God-like status than any Soviet iconography did. Orthodox icons of Stalin should display him as a non-martyr or a martyr of one believes he was killed (but certainly not depict him like Christ). He should be holding either a list of his victims or a cigar. He does not give blessings, but may give a "high five" or thumbs-up, but the thumbs-up must be accompanied by an enigmatic, unsettling grin. I think, if it's a gift for Isa, Stalin can be depicted holding maps, either of gulags or conquests.

Yes, it is St Spyridon. The inscription is pretty clear, and the saint is wearing his distinctive wicker shepherd's hat.

So much for a one-off heretical icon post. I thought it was too well preserved to be true...Every other image I could find of Nestorious had the face scratched off.

The consistent Orthodox iconographic tradition is that the Christ-child holds a small scroll, symbolizing divine wisdom (after all, He is the Wisdom and the Word of God) if He holds anything.

I was aware of this. It's just a near-contemporaneous portrait. Since Western portraiture was not really in Muscovy at the time, iconographic art was the sort of baseline, it seems.

In traditional Orthodox icons of St. Ivan Grozny, he is holding a severed head, dripping blood.

I'd like to know what the Slavonic says.

Someone asked for "icons" of Ivan the Terrible:



And this is allegedly a myrrh-streaming version:



The spiel at the bottom is a velichaniya (magnification, a hymn of praise sung at Matins at the Polyeleos/Polyelei, as the priest stands before the icon of the saint or feast being commemorated, censing it) to the "saint":

We magnify you, our great-martyr, beloved of Christ, and divinely-wise Tsar Ioann, and we honor your holy memory, for you pray to Christ our God for us.

Un-believable.  :P :P :P :P :P :P

The style is a lot better than those of Stalin, however.

Great martyr?

I read in a couple articles quotes from people in the Russian Chruch that myrrh streaming from an icon isn't proof of sanctity of the individual depicted. This was before the Royal Martyrs were canonized. Same also with St. Yevgeny Rodionov.

It is unfortunate there are no bloody heads or that he and Metropolitan St. Philip are not together.

Indeed. What these fanatics overlook is that their beloved "Tsar-martyr" will never be proclaimed a saint, in part because of his part in the murder of Metropolitan St Philip of Moscow. The tsar is referred to in the festal hymns for St Philip as "a new Herod" and "a new Pharaoh". Hardly the stuff of sainthood.
