This icon was painted in Moscow in the 16th century. Also known as "The Church Militant," it depicts the heavenly army in the Book of Revelation, and includes imagery of the Heavenly Jerusalem and the River of Life. The burning city is Babylon the Great. It also finds inspiration in various Orthodox hymns celebrating the martyrs as warriors of Christ, finding their rank among the angels. (more)
