Christ the Pantocrator Icon


#1

I just heard about this Christ the Pantocrator Icon and the parallels with the Shroud of Turin. Anyone else hear of this icon and its history? Link.


#2

The Pantocrator of Sinai is one of my favorite icons!

Yes, the possible connection of the PoS with the SoT is an old one.

As a matter of fact, I understand that the PoS is believed to be part of a triptych about the Icon Not Made By Hands–SoT by another name.

What’s a triptych?


#4

A triptych is an icon with three panels. Usually Christ or the Virgin Mary will be on the middle panel, with saints or angels on each of the side panels.
