Icon of the Synaxis of the Glorious and All-Praiseworthy Twelve Apostles


Beautiful antique icon of the Synaxis of the Glorious and All-Praiseworthy Twelve Apostles, painted in the 15th century. As the name suggests, the icon depicts a celebratory gathering of the Holy Apostles, honoring the chosen friends and disciples of Jesus Christ. It comes from the Cathedral of St. Sophia  (the Holy Wisdom of God) in Veliky Novgorod and is currently held at the Tretyakov State Gallery in Moscow.
