Saint Eleutherius, Hieromartyr, Bishop of Illyria, Full Body - Byzantine Icon

[Model: BYZ_st-2693]

Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint Eleutherius.

Saint Eleutherius came from a good family and after a trip with his mother, Anthia, to Rome, Bishop Anicetus took him under his protection and a few years later ordained him deacon and priest. 

His career was long as his spirit was pure and he led a pious life. Thus, he was elected Bishop of Illyricum and helped the Christians with his works. 

His action upset the Roman Emperor Septimius Severus who ordered his torture to the arena of Rome with wild beasts. When these beasts did not attack the Saint, the pagans beheaded him and his mother. 

Saint Eleutherius is traditionally the patron saint of pregnant women who advocates for safe childbirth. 


Apolytikion 

Adorned with flowing priestly vesture and with dripping streams of blood you at once went to your Lord Christ, O blessed wise Eleftherios, annihilator of Satan. Wherefore, do not cease to intercede for those who honor your blessed struggles in faith.


The Icon of Saint Eleutherius is an exact copy of Byzantine art and is created by experienced craftsmen using the method of gold printing where hagiographic leaves of 22 karat gold are applied in detail to decorate the background.

During the final processing, the icon is painted with dark red color around the perimeter and polished with a special varnish to maintain its shine.

It is offered in level or recessed wooden surface and is suitable for wall mounting.
