Supposedly, Nyx with Isaiah.

Not uncommon for early illuminations to incorporate pre-Christian images and symbols. It would be far better if such imagery were not there, but such illuminations are what they are.

Why?

Because the figures are pagan gods and personifications. Nyx was the Greek goddess of the night.

I want an icon of Maria Romanov seductively inviting me to become her tsar in exile.


JamesR, your comment above equates to blasphemy against a saint.  For this you will receive a 10 day warning, on top of the warning you are currently serving.

In the future, please refrain from posting any such comments in regards to saints.

If you have any questions, please send me a PM.

Thanks,

You're really on to something here. Tattoo to keep you from masturbating, chew to keep you from fornicating... it's a whole new world where you outsource your crosses. You're like a Christian entrepreneur or something.

I know who she was. I just dont have a problem with it. But maybe that should be a different thread.
