Mount Athos weathered lithography (icon) of Saint Epiphanius, Archbishop of Cyprus, in pine wood with carved decoration.
Saint Epiphanius was a devotee of asceticism, a proponent of Orthodoxy and an anti-heretical writer. He was born in the village of Visandouki near Eleftheroupoli in Palestine around 315 AD, from a poor family. During his asceticism in the desert of Palestine, he studied the Holy Scriptures. His virtues soon made him bishop of Constantia in Cyprus. From this position he fought for the preservation of the unadulterated Christian faith, fighting with his writings the heretical delusions of Origen. He died in peace in 403 AD, after thirty-six whole years of offering and teaching. His memory is celebrated by the Orthodox Christian Church on May 12 of each year.
