Страсти Господни {6063}
Passion of Christ
The theme of the Passion appeared in visual arts at the dawn of Christian iconography and at various times it represented, more or less fully, the Passion of Christ described in the Gospels by St. Matthew and St. John. The theme was elucidated in various kinds of both West-European and Byzantine art. Separate subjects usually comprise cycles which chronologically reproduce events according to evangelical texts. Under the influence of theological meditations on the act of redemption most of The Passion icons incorporated the Crucifixion in the center of the composition as an apotheosis of the cycle. The oldest frescos on this theme belong to the 11th century (St. Sophia Cathedral of Kyiv).Almost every Ukrainian church had either murals or icons on the Passion theme.
