Seven hundred years ago, a hunter in Russia discovered an Icon of the Theotokos of the Sign entangled in the roots of a tree. This Icon came to be known as the Kursk-Root Icon, becoming one of the most beloved, venerated, andtreasured miraculous icons in all of Holy Russia.
Many miracles have been attributed to this Icon. During the Second World War, houses that were visited by this Icon were miraculously spared from bombs dropped during air raids. This Icon has been venerated by millions of Orthodox Christians all over the world. It can safely be said that it is one of the most travelled and venerated icons in the entire Orthodox world.
This book contains the story of the wonderworking Icon, accounts of its past and recent miracles, narratives of celebrations and pilgrimages in its honour, and a number of articles concerning the Orthodox Church’s teaching regarding the veneration of the Most Holy Theotokos and of the holy icons.
