Additional icon information: Virgin Mary icons, Theotokos icons, Panaghia icons, εικόνες Παναγίας.

The icons in this collection are among the most famous of the Byzantine icons of the Theotokos.

They are hand crafted, prayerfully made by the nuns of the Paracletos Monastery.

All Orthodox homes should have an icon of the Theotokos alongside the icon of Jesus Christ. Both are important for understanding the Incarnation of God.

It is a fundamental truth of Orthodox faith that Christ is both fully God and fully human.

Icons of the Mother of God, the Theotokos, Panagia (Greek: Παναγία), or the Virgin Mary. She is the most "blessed" among women and the closest of all the saints to God.

She is one who protects us and whom we can call on for comfort and help because she is close to God.

As a title for the Virgin Mary, Theotokos was recognized by the Orthodox Church at Third Ecumenical Council held at Ephesus in 431.

It had already been in use for some time in the devotional and liturgical life of the Church.

The theological significance of the title is to emphasize that Mary's son, Jesus, is fully God, as well as fully human,

and that Jesus' two natures (divine and human) were united in a single Person of the Trinity. Her full title is "Our All-holy, immaculate,

most blessed and glorified Lady, the Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary"

(Greek: Τῆς Παναγίας, ἀχράντου, ὑπερευλογημένης, ἐνδόξου, δεσποίνης ἡμῶν Θεοτόκου καὶ ἀειπαρθένου Μαρίας)
