Saint Demetrius the Myrrh-Gusher, Enthroned - Hand Painted Icon

[Model: HND_st-8938]

Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Saint Demetrius the Myrrh-Gusher.


Saint Demetrius came from Thessaloniki and was a centurion in the Roman Army. Despite the fear of persecution, he became a Christian and was imprisoned under the rule of Emperor Diocletian. 

He was imprisoned along with his friend and skilled warrior, Nestor, who had to duel with Lyaeus. Saint Demetrius told Nestor that he would win the battle, as it happened. Galerius, a member of the Tetrarchy, was greatly displeased with the result and ordered Nestor's death while summoning Saint Demetrius and ordering him to deny his faith. When he refused, he ordered to kill him. 

The place where he was buried exudes myrrh, hence the name "Myroblyte" meaning 'the Myrrh-Gusher', while a Holy Temple was built on the spot. 


Apolytikion 

The world has found in you a great champion in time of peril, as you emerged the victor in routing the barbarians. For as you brought to naught the boasts of Lyaios, imparting courage to Nestor in the stadium, in like manner, holy one, great Martyr Demetrius, invoke Christ God for us, that He may grant us His great mercy.


Hand-Painted Icons occupy a valuable place in ecclesiastical art because, beyond their obvious artistic value, a hand-painted icon unites man with the holiness of the depicted person.


For the Hand-Painted Icon of Saint Demetrius the Myrrh-Gusher, our experienced painters use traditional techniques and high-quality materials that offer excellent depiction and durability over time.
