Iconographer: Holy Monastery Dormition of Theotokos, Parnitha
Jason was from Tarsus of Cilicia, and became
bishop there. When he had shepherded his church well for a long time, he
departed west that he might profit others also, and arrived finally at the
island of Corfu, where he was the first to preach the Gospel to its people. He
suffered many things for Christ’s name, drew many souls to salvation, and
finished the course of his life there.
The icon reproductions are
created by iconographer monks of various Greek Orthodox monasteries in Greece
and all images are approved replications by the Greek Orthodox Church.
As icons are considered to be the Gospel in image, these images are accurate
and true Orthodox renderings, not second-hand interpretations. The icon
images are mounted on solid wood and protected from tarnish with a varnish
finish that seals in colors and creates a shiny luster.
