Saint Dorotheus became Bishop of Tyre in Phoenicia about the end of
the third century. During the persecution of Diocletian and Maximian, about the
year 303, he fled to Odyssopolis in Thrace to preserve his life, and after the
death of the tyrants he returned to Tyre. He lived until the reign of Julian
the Apostate (361-363), from whose persecution he again fled to Odyssopolis
(or, according to Theophylact of Bulgaria, Edessa), but was found by Julianís
men and slain in great torments, at the age of 107, in 361. He was very
learned, and has left behind writings in both Latin and Greek relating the
lives of the holy Prophets, Apostles, and other Saints.
The icon reproductions are created
by iconographer monks of various Greek Orthodox monasteries in Greece and all
images are approved replications by the Greek Orthodox Church. As icons
are considered to be the Gospel in image, these images are accurate and true
Orthodox renderings, not second-hand interpretations. The icon images are
mounted on solid wood and protected from tarnish with a varnish finish that
seals in colors and creates a shiny luster.
Icons ship direct to you from Greece. Please allow 10-20
days for delivery.
