The Feodorovskaya Icon of the Mother of God was lost in the 13th century Mongol invasion of Russia, but was miraculously rediscovered by Prince Vasily of Kostroma several months later, while he was hunting in the forest. During Prince Vasily's excursion, St. Theodore Stratelates (in Russian, Feodor Stratilat) was seen by many in Kostroma carrying an icon of the Theotokos, and so his name came to be associated with the icon.

Several centuries later, the first Romanov Tsar Michael was blessed by his mother with a copy of the icon upon his accession to the throne. It thus became the patronal icon of the Romanov family. Today the original icon resides in the Kostroma Theophany Cathedral.

5" x 6.25"

A custom-fitting wooden shrine, called "kiot" in Russian, is also available for this icon. Find it here >>
