"Cathedrals and Churches - Icons" Cathedrals and Churches Tip by Audrey118

 
 

Favorite thing: Another feature to note in Russian Orthodox churches are the many many rows of icosn.

When you look at the altar at the east end of the church, you will see 4 rows or 4 tiers of icons. The top row contains the Old Testament Prophets and at th top is the Holy Cross.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
