Savior "Lord Over All"

209572

A late 17th century icon of Our Lord seated in judgment of the living and the dead, by the hand of the great Muscovite iconographer Simon Ushakov. Ushakov's characteristic style gives this icon remarkable warmth, emphasizing God's boundless mercy. The Gospel book is open to the Church Slavonic passage: "Come, ye blessed of my Father... for I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat, I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink, I was a stranger, and ye took me in. Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me" (Matthew 25:34-6).
