Saint Barbara Icon - S247

2 Customer Reviews Write a Review

Barbara, born in the third century in Syria, was so beautiful that her pagan father placed her in an isolated tower to keep her innocent of any influence except his own until she could be married. Like St. Christina, Barbara also came to realize that the idols she saw were not real gods, and determined to live in celibacy and devotion for the Creator. 

Barbara’s father was troubled by her new beliefs, and hoped to distract her by sending her into civilization. But Barbara instead befriended several young Christian women who taught her their beliefs, and was baptized herself. After undergoing great torture and being healed with visions of Christ, St. Barbara, alongside the virgin St. Juliana, who was inspired by compassion to join her, was martyred by her own father in 306. 

The icon of St. Barbara shows her crowned with her virginity and martyrdom, and ornately dressed. Like other martyrs, she holds a cross. Her feast is celebrated on December 4. Throughout history, countless miracles have occurred in the place where Barbara proclaimed the faith to her father.

  • Purchased this for my sister, Barbara, for her birthday!

    This is a very unique icon. The colors make it stand out, and the appearance of the aging areas give it an "ages ago" feeling.

  • Outstanding as Always

    I've purchased many icons from Legacy. Each and every experience has been outstanding in every way. The materials used are of the highest quality; the craftsmanship is excellent. The service around purchasing is always easy, and my questions have always been answered quickly. This most recent purchase of St. Barbara was no exception--an outstanding icon, packed with care, and received very quickly--as always!
