Saint Catherine of Alexandria

€20.00
Saint Catherine according to tradition, is a Christian saint and virgin, who was martyred in the early 4th century at the hands of the pagan emperor Maxentius. According to her hagiography, she was both a princess and a noted scholar, who became a Christian around the age of fourteen, and converted hundreds of people to Christianity. She was martyred around the age of 18. Over 1,100 years following her martyrdom, St. Joan of Arc identified Catherine as one of the Saints who appeared to her and counselled her. The Eastern Orthodox Church celebrates her feast day on 24 or 25 November.

This icon is an authentic copy of Byzantine hagiography using contemporary means (silk print) on prepared canvas with a gold leaf background.
