Description

VIRGIN, ABBESS OF MOUNT ATHOS, FULL BODY 9317 This is one of the few icons in which the Virgin is shown without the Divine Infant. Here we behold her in monastic garb, wearing an abbatial mandyas (mantle) and carrying a paterisa (crozier or staff) as she is borne on clouds above the Holy Mountain of Athos, which is called the Garden of the Panagia (All-Pure). The Holy Virgin came ashore and blessed the peninsula saying, “Let this spot be my portion; here let me abide.” The tradition is that she is the only woman allowed there since then.
