Saints Constantine and Helen, Full Body - Byzantine Icon

[Model: BYZ_st-9063]

Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint Constantine and Helen.

Saint Constantine was a Roman Emperor, son of Emperor Flavius ​​Valerius Constantius and Saint Helen, who ruled from 306 to 337 AD. With his reforms, he strengthened Christianity and abolished persecutions from the empire.

Inspired and blessed by her son's triumph, Saint Helen traveled to Jerusalem in 326 AD where after excavations she discovered the Holy Cross, part of which she took to Constantinople.

It was established that they are depicted together in icons, hagiographies and constantinata (golden ornaments used as amulets) and they hold the title of Isapostle meaning Equal-to-the-Apostles.


Apolytikion

He beheld the image of Your Cross in the Heavens and, as Paul, he too did not receive the call from men. Your Apostle among Kings placed the care of the Royal City in Your hands. Through the intercessions of the Theotokos, O only Loving Lord, keep it ever in peace.

Kontakion

Today, Constantine with his mother Helen present the Cross, the most precious wood. It shames unbelievers. It is a weapon of faithful kings against their adversaries. A great sign has come forth for us which is awesome in battle.
