Saint John (Climacus) of Sinai, Author of the Ladder - Byzantine Icon

[Model: BYZ_st-2870]

Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint John (Climacus) of Sinai, Author of the Ladder of Divine Ascent.

Saint John of Sinai was born around 523 AD in Syria to a wealthy family. He received an excellent education but his desire was to dedicate himself to God. During his teenage years, he became a monk at Sinai Monastery and quickly stood out for his virtues and his faith.

With the death of the abbot, Saint John was elected by the rest of the monks to take his place and lead the Monastery. He remained as an abbot for some years, but later retired to a cave for almost four decades as he wanted to devote himself to exercise and prayer.

He died peacefully in 606 AD leaving behind two works of great theological importance, "The Ladder of Divine Ascent" and "To the Pastor", which are a religious aid to the faith of Christians.


Troparion of Saint John of Sinai

Dweller of the desert and angel in the body, / you were shown to be a wonderworker, our God-bearing Father John. / You received heavenly gifts through fasting, vigil, and prayer: / healing the sick and the souls of those drawn to you by faith. / Glory to Him who gave you strength. / Glory to Him who granted you a crown. / Glory to Him Who, through you, grants healing to all.


The Icon of Saint John of Sinai, Author of the Ladder of Divine Ascent 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.
