The Original Greek New Testament

Icon of the cover

The web site’s cover shows the Mother of God embracing the young Christ.

Although the theme is common in Christian iconography, this particular Icon, from a Byzantine church in Cappadocia, differs in the emphasis that it gives to the beauty of Panaghia and the agony of Christ.
