Icon of the Virgin Mary “Volokolamsk”

Icon of the Virgin Mary “Volokolamsk”

Celebration: March 16
Volokolamsk Icon of the Mother of God — a list from the Vladimir Icon of the Moscow Assumption Cathedral. The icon was brought from Zvenigorod to the Assumption Monastery of St. Joseph of Volotsk on March 2, 1572, during the 2nd week of Great Lent, and was solemnly welcomed by Abbot Leonid (1563-1566; 1568-1573) and all the monastery’s brethren. Its distinctive feature is the image on the margins of Saints Cyprian (right) and Gerontius (left), Metropolitans of Moscow. The name of Metropolitan Cyprian is associated with the first arrival of the ancient Vladimir icon of the Mother of God from Vladimir to Moscow in 1395, and under Metropolitan Gerontius in 1480, the Vladimir shrine finally became Moscow. In 1588, the gate church of the southern gate of the Iosifo-Volotsky Monastery was dedicated to the Volokolamsk icon in honor of the Presentation of the Vladimir Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos (August 26). At the end of the 17th century, when the church of the same name was built on Staraya Basmannaya Street in Moscow, the gate church of the Iosifo-Volotsky Monastery was consecrated in the name of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul. The Volokolamsk icon was moved to the local row of the iconostasis of the new Cathedral of the Assumption Church of the Iosifo-Volotsky Monastery. In the everyday life of the Iosifo-Volotsky monastery in 1578, this icon is marked as miraculous.
