Icon with polished gold and tsoukani technique with Saint Luke

Saint Lukas was a doctor and he was declared a Saint in 1996. He was born in Kerch of Crimaia and grew up in Kiev, where along with his general studies he also studied Painting and Medicine, specializing on surgery. After the death of his wife, he became a priest and was exiled in Siberia. In 1920 he was elected Professor of Topographic Anatomy and Surgery at the University of Tashkent.

His research on the issue of purulent infections were innovative and he wrote the manual still used today. He was arrested multiple times and was brutally tortured. He slept in Simferopol after having served as an Archbishop and doctor selflessly and with sacrificial love. Throughout the last nine years of his life he was blind from glaucoma, but in this also he showed Job-like patience.
