Description

Icon with Apostles Peter and Paul on Naturally Aged Wood

At this serigrah we have the representations of two of the most important persons of Christianity, apostles Paul and Peter. Paul was an apostle and he is generally considered one of the most important figures in Orthodox Church. He also founded several churches in Asia Minor and Europe. It is known that apostle Paul was a persecutor of Jesus Christ but after a vision he had he became one of the biggest supporters of Christianity. According to tradition Paul was on his way to Damascus when he had the vision that changed his life. More specifically, Paul saw a blinding bright light that was Jesus and some time later he went to Jerusalem to become acquainted with the leading apostles there.

The Apostle Peter was the leader of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ and he followed him from the beginning of his preaching of salvation. His feast is celebrated on June 29 along with the Apostle Paul. Apostle Peter was given the name «Kephas». The precise meaning is «rock» but some scholars are saying that it means rather «stone» and particularly in its application by Jesus to him as «precious stone» or «jewel». Although most scholars agree that as a proper name it denotes a rough or tough character.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

That piece of naturally aged wood used to be part of a door leaf at a cell at Mount Athos. When the cell was renovated because it has suffered many damages through years monks kept the pieces of that old wood to use them as a base at the icons they create. Renovation works were necessary so the cell could  remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there. Every part of this cell is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. At Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries. The old wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood.
