Research Request for two Russian Saints
- Dear Friends,
I am having research conducted in Russia on all information available
including icons for the following saints:
St. Juliana of Lazarevo
We have a lot of information, much of which is on our website which you
can visit in order to minimize duplications: stjuliana.com
We are still conducting research as Reader Isaac is translating and
helping to assemble all such information for a complete work next year,
her 400th anniversary. I am also trying to contact (if anyone can
help, his church email address has been fruitless) Priest Theodore
Juriewicz who wrote one or two of the icons we have posted at this site.
I am trying to locate more information of location of this icon (from
Russia, their translation):
