Top row of the orthodox Multiple-Field icon:

Die Ikonografie der Mutter Gottes von Kasan, auch als Kasanskaja bekannt, wird prominent gefeiert (am 8. Juli und 22. Oktober). Sie zeigt die Jungfrau Maria und hat tiefgreifende spirituelle Bedeutung in der orthodoxen Tradition des Ostens.

Neben ihr sehen wir die Darstellung von Christi triumphaler Auferstehung aus dem Grab, eine ikonische Darstellung des zentralen Ereignisses im christlichen Glauben.

Den Abschluss der oberen Reihe bildet der heilige Nikolaus, der angesehene Bischof von Myra, geehrt am 6. Dezember, 9. Mai und 29. Juli. Sowohl in der östlichen als auch in der westlichen christlichen Tradition als geliebter Heiliger anerkannt, ist der heilige Nikolaus bekannt für seine Barmherzigkeit, Großzügigkeit und Fürsprache für verschiedene Gruppen und Personen.

Middle row of the orthodox Multiple-Field icon:

In the middle row, we encounter Saint Martyr Blaise, the esteemed Bishop of Sebaste, whose feast day falls on February 11. He is revered for his steadfast faith and martyrdom in defense of his beliefs.

Next, we have Saint Zosima, the revered Abbot of Solovki Monastery, celebrated on April 17. His life exemplified monastic dedication, asceticism, and spiritual wisdom, leaving an indelible mark on the Orthodox monastic tradition.

Another venerated figure in this row is Saint Modestus, the Bishop of Jerusalem, commemorated on December 18. He played a significant role in the early Christian community, promoting orthodoxy and defending the faith against heretical teachings.

The image of Emperor Constantine and his mother Helena exalting the Cross powerfully commemorates the discovery of the True Cross by Saint Helena and the subsequent triumph of Christianity, a celebration held on September 14.

Beside these, the icons of Saint Martyr Florus and Saint Sabbatios, the founder of the Solovki Monastery, represent the honoring of their steadfast faith and martyrdom on August 18 and September 27, respectively.

Completing the middle row is Saint Martyr Laurus, whose feast day coincides with that of Saint Florus on August 18. Their lives serve as inspiring examples of unwavering commitment to Christ, even in the face of persecution and suffering.

The bottom row begins with the depiction of Saint Great Martyr George, renowned for his valor and unwavering faith. Celebrated on April 23 and May 6, Saint George is depicted as a soldier mounted on horseback, symbolizing his victorious struggle against evil and his ultimate martyrdom.

Next is Saint Martyr Catherine of Alexandria, honored on November 24 and November 25. She is revered for her wisdom, steadfastness, and defense of the Christian faith, making her an enduring symbol of intellectual and spiritual strength.

Adjacent to Saint Catherine is Saint Martyr Daria, the patron saint of judges, commemorated on March 19. She serves as a heavenly intercessor for those seeking justice and righteousness in legal matters.

Completing the bottom row is Saint Martyr Demetrios of Salonika, the patron saint of soldiers, celebrated on October 26. He is venerated as a powerful intercessor and protector for those in military service, embodying courage, valor, and faith in the face of adversity.
