Saint Severus eikon - compline - 24-04-2008

There is, on the BOF forum "frontpage", a lovely (albeit low-res) photo of a wall-painting of St Severus; it shows the saintly Patriarch clasping the Holy Bible, his hand raised in blessing.

Could some kind person pls let me know (a) the source of this image (Egyptian, I presume?); and (b) how/where I might find a high-res copy.

Thanks again.

Someone sent me the images a while back, but I can't remember who or where they were from.

I'll look through my past emails and may still have it from a couple of years back, and then I will be able to ask.

I have an icon of St Severus, by Deacon Stephane Rene from London. You can see a copy here ...

For anyone interested: There's a clearer repro of the image on the OOL website: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->
