Resurrection

You can order this icon in our Mounted Sizes from 4" to 24" tall and in the sames sizes in Unmounted Prints by using the pulldown Size/Price menu below right. This icon subject is available in ourCathedral Sizes and as a Church Banner.

Based on ancient prototypes, our icon of The Resurrection shows Christ's triumphant descent into hades after His death on the Cross on Great Friday As described in the Apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus, we seen Him freeing those souls held in the bondage of death, and also bestowing freedom on those righteous souls who were as yet unable to enter Paradise. In this paschal icon these holy ones stand on either side of Christ, looking on in worshipful joy: King David, Solomon, Saint John the Baptist, Abel the Righteous, and the Prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah. Raising them up the Savior brings them into Paradise and sets them free. He also raises Adam and Eve by the hands from their tombs, symbolizing the freeing of mankind from its imprisonment in fallen nature that was accomplished by the Resurrection.

Christ stands on the fallen gates or doors of Hell and Lucifer lies chained and crushed beneath them, symbolizing the victory of the divine over evil.
