A century later: the miraculous icon of «Christ Moskvoretsky» was returned

The image of «God Almighty» or «Saved Moskvoretsky», is a unique monument of Russian icon painting. This is one of the last images created in the old tradition — before the reforms of Patriarch Nikon. He has split the previously unified Russian Orthodox Church. The image was written to the Northern master; it was a gift Solovetsky monastery Zosimo-Savvat desert. This Hermitage was founded by Stefan Vonifatiev, the Confessor of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, the protopope of the Annunciation Cathedral of the Moscow Kremlin. Being a wealthy man, he donated large sums of money to the Solovetsky monastery.
