Abstract

This article is devoted to a collection of wonderworking icons of the Theotokos which came to renown on Athos, whose stories are compiled in an illustrated 18th-century manuscript entitled “The Most Brilliant Sun”. The article traces the correlation between the stories concerning these icons and their depictions in the illustrated collection of engravings from 1713—1714 by G. P. Tepchegorsky and in the earliest known graphic compilation of icons of the Theotokos — the frame of an icon of the Theotokos of Vladimir dating back to 1722, by the artist Ivan Dorofeyev. In a number of instances where a depiction did not match the actual icon due to unavailability of the original, the article traces the sources from which the iconography invented by the engraver was borrowed. Also analyzed are instances in which the actual titles of Athonite icons of the Theotokos were replaced with others that arose exclusively on Russian soil. It is apparent that, despite the marked increase in the 18th century of information on the wonderworking icons of Athos, their appearance remained unknown in Russia, with the exception of those of which reliable copies were already to be found in Moscow.
