A wonderful lithography with a varnish layer and high quality paint depicting The Raising of Lazarus by our Lord Jesus Christ. An icon aesthetically upgraded with collective value due to the handmade artificial ageing it has undergone. This is an exact copy of a Byzantine hagiography.


The righteous saint Lazarus, also Lazarus the Four Days Dead,[note 1] or Lazarus of Bethany (latinized from the Hebrew: אלעזר, Elʿāzār, Eleazar - "God is my help"[1]) was a friend and one of the first disciples of Jesus Christ, and the first Bishop of Kition in Cyprus.[note 2] He was resuscitated by Jesus Christ shortly before His triumphal entry into the city of Jerusalem.


The Church commemorates his feast on Lazarus Saturday,[6] which together with Palm Sunday, hold a unique position in the church year as days of joy and triumph between the penitence of Great Lent and the mourning of Holy Week.[


Lazarus is also commemorated on the fixed feast day of March 17, while the translation of his relics from Cyprus to Constantinople in the year 898 AD is commemorated on October 17.


According to the Gospel of John, Lazarus lived in the town of Bethany (approximately two miles outside of Jerusalem in the present day West Bank) with his two sisters, Mary and Martha. On His way to Jerusalem before the Passover, the sisters had sent word to Jesus and His Apostles that Lazarus was ill. The Lord tarried where He was, later perceiving Lazarus' death. When He arrived, Lazarus had already been in his tomb for four days. When Martha reproached Our Lord for not arriving sooner, Christ assured her that Lazarus would rise. Martha mistook this for the universal resurrection on Judgment Day, to which He replied, "I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever believeth in me shall never die" (John 11:25-26, KJV).


In the presence of the mourners, the Lord ordered the stone roll
