Icons of the Resurrection of Christ
Paschal icons, worth thousands of words
It can take a lot of words to express the joy of Easter, the reality of the Kingdom of Christ, or the meaning of His ultimate sacrifice, but only one image to capture it all. Share your jubilation Easter with someone you love or care about by giving them an Easter icon. In this section, you will find a wide range of icons narrating events related to the resurrection of Christ, including Lenten icons, depicting the feasts of the Lenten weeks.
The icons of the Resurrection of Christ take a central place in this collection. Andrey Rublev and Dionysius established a centuries-long tradition of depicting this glorious event in Russian iconography. The risen Lord appears in radiant attire in the centre of the canvas. The blue and purple sphere behind him symbolises the Holy Spirit. Flanking him on either side are angels, kings, saints and prophets, shown with haloes around their heads. Adam and Eve appear as ordinary human beings without the haloes. Holding them by their hands, Christ is pulling them out from Hades. At his feet lie the broken doors to His tomb, like shattered gates of hell.
More recent icons of the Resurrection of Jesus depict Christ rising from his grave in triumph, illuminated by a bright light. The guards outside his grave bow down in awe, and He raises his other hand in a blessing.
An icon is a Christian gift of love and appreciation for the people you love and care about. It is your way to help them deepen their relationship with God and enhance their prayer lives. As we pray before an Easter icon, we ask for spiritual healing, deliverance from sadness and despair, and wisdom to make good choices.
