Description:

Virgin Mary: was a first-century BC Galilean Jewishwoman of Nazareth, and the mother of Jesus, according to the New Testament and the Quran. The gospels of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament and the Quran describe Mary as a virgin. In Matthew and Luke she is betrothed to Joseph. According to Christian theology she conceived Jesus through the Holy Spirit while still a virgin. She accompanied Joseph to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born.

Taxiarchs: The name Taxiarchis is given to the Archangels Michael or Gabriel. Literally meaning "commander" (of a taxis, a squadron), the name is usually translated into English as "Archangel," but may also be rendered simply as "Michael" or "Gabriel," who are both commemorated in liturgical texts as "Commander of the Bodiless Hosts." Few Orthodox churches, however, are named after "St. Taxiarchis," preferring to take the name Taxiarchae, meaning "Archangels."
