Icon of the Virgin “Goalkeeper of Uglich” (Unquenchable Candle)

Icon of the Virgin “Goalkeeper of Uglich” (Unquenchable Candle)

Celebration: February 28
The legend of the Dalmatian icon establishes a connection between its origin and the founder of the monastery — Saint Dalmatian, who in 1644 settled in a cave at the confluence of the Techa River with the Iset River. He brought with him an icon of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary from the Nevyansky Monastery, where he took monastic vows. In 1651, a monastery began to form near the Dalmatian cell, but this monastery was destroyed by the Siberian tsarevich Devlet Giray. According to legend, the icon of the Virgin was not damaged by the fire, except for its back side. According to the first mention of the Dalmatian icon, it was reported by the petitioning abbess of the Dalmatian monastery Isaac and cellarer Nikon to the Russian tsars Ivan and Peter Alekseevich. They asked for funds to build a monastery. In 1707, the stone Assumption Cathedral was built around Kelly Dalmatian, which then placed the Dalmatian icon. In the XVIII century, the icon was decorated with a silver gilded salary. In 1800, the icon acquired a precious silver gilded robe, presented by Archimandrite Gideon. In 1864, Archimandrite Methodius in Moscow ordered another silver-gilded chased chasuble with precious stones. On April 19, 1852, a fire destroyed many of the monastery’s buildings, including the upper chapel of the Assumption Cathedral, but the Dalmatian Icon remained intact. In the early 1920s, after the monastery was closed, its inhabitants dispersed to other monasteries and took the Dalmatian Icon with them. Currently, there is no reliable information about her whereabouts. Since the disappearance of the icon, some lists of icons have been known: The list of 1725, made by the iconographer of Tamakulskaya sloboda, priest Andrey Mikhailov, and decorated with a silver salary. A list written in 1854 in the Znamenskaya Church of Barnaul, which was a high-quality copy of the original and an icon with authentic colors and materials. The list is from 1859, made by the Golyshev brothers, who also decorated it with an 1800 chasuble that originally belonged to the original. An accurate measurement list from 2002, created by Archpriest Alexander Manshina.
