Isaac of Syria

Isaac of Syria

190.00

Icon of Saint Isaac the Syrian, also known as Isaac of Ninevah, Abba Isaac, Isaac Syrus and Isaac of Qatar. A 7th-century bishop and theologian whose writings remain powerful and challenging.

"Be persecuted, rather than be a persecutor. Be crucified, rather than be a crucifier. Be treated unjustly, rather than treat anyone unjustly. Be oppressed, rather than zealous. Lay hold of goodness, rather than justice."

This is part of the series of traditional and Orthodox saints, which derives from a range of sources, including manuscripts, other icons and mosaics. Some icons include 24 carat gold highlights.

Isaac of Syria is painted in acrylic on a Loxley Gold box canvas and has two layers of varnish. It is signed on the reverse in pencil. All edges are painted and varnished. 

This is one of a series of traditional saints; see my gallery for other images.

The image size is 20cm x 25cm (8" x 10").
