Igorevskaya icon of the Mother of God
According to legend, the Igorevskaya icon of the Mother of God was owned by the Prince of Kiev and Chernigov Igor Olgovich. After his death in 1146, his brother, Prince Igor Novgorod-Seversky was announced the Prince of Kiev. But the Kievans secretly called to reign over Kiev the Prince of Pereyaslavl Isyaslav (Panteleimon) Mstislavovich who overthrew Igor and had him thrown into a pit. There the prince got desperately ill and was allowed to become a monk in the Monastery of St. Feodor in Kiev but he did not stay there long. Anticipating a mob trial, the prince prayed to the icon that was later called Igorevskaya and venerated as wonderworking. In 1147, the Kievans, wanting to lynch the prince, dragged him out of the monastery and killed him. The tale of Prince Igor’s praying to the Mother of God icon is contained in the Tale of the Killing of the Blessed Igorincluded in the Kievo-Pechersky Paterikon, authored by Archimandrite Joseph in the mid-17th century.
