Curious facts about Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra

Did you know that if you were the citizen of Kyiv with some sort of income or the guest of the Kyivan in the early 19th century, you would probably have met hieromonk Hilarion, the gardener of Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, and made friends with him?

Saint Ioannucius the Great

Dear friends!

Artistic Heritage column continues presenting the paintings of the Refectory Church of Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.

Today we will speak about the medallions located on the arches of the exedras of the Refectory Church. They are adorned with the faces of sixteen Saints. The work was done by the artist Ivan Izhakevych. The names of most of the Saints resonate with the names of the Metropolitans that headed Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra in the 19th century. The hermit Ioannucius the Great, for example, was named after Metropolitan Ioannicius (Rudniev).
