Gold Plated Lithography with Saint Daniel

Prophet Daniel is one of the four Great Prophets, he was  descended from the royal family of David and the Church honors him on December 17th. He was taken into captivity by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and served the king and his successors with loyalty and ability for many years. It is known that he was educated in the imperial court and when he became an adult the king gave him a great position in the state. According to tradition Daniel had the charisma to interpret dreams and to prophesy and later he also prophesied the coming of Jesus. When Darius threw him into the pit with the lions because he was praying, he came out unscathed. Darius saw that miracle and kept Daniel at his court where he remained and died in old age.
