Saint Euphemia, the Great Martyr - Byzantine Icon

[Model: BYZ_st-7140]

Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint Euphemia, the Great Martyr.

Saint Euphemia was born in Chalcedon to a pious family and grew up with a Christian education. When the pagan Priscus ordered the inhabitants of Chalcedon to sacrifice to idols, Saint Euphemia, along with other Christians, refused to attend.

This led to the imprisonment and torture of Saint Euphemia, who valiantly defended her faith to the end. Determined to exterminate her, Priscus's followers threw her into a beast arena, where she met a gruesome death.


Apolytikion of Saint Euphemia

O Euphemia, Christ's comely virgin, thou didst fill the Orthodox with gladness and didst cover with shame all the heretics; for at the holy Fourth Council in Chalcedon, thou didst confirm what the Fathers decreed aright. O all-glorious Great Martyr, do thou entreat Christ God that His great mercy may be granted unto us.


The Icon of Saint Euphemia 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.
