The miraculous icon of the Virgin from Chełm

The miraculous icon of the Virgin from Chełm

This paper is written entirely in French but having used my best schoolboy French I think it is worthwhile posting for those that have mastered the language better than I. The icon is known as Kholmska Bohorodytsya, the Icon of the Mother of God of Kholm (now Chelm, Poland). It was believed to have been painted by St Luke himself. Later it was brought to the Slavic lands by Grand Prince Volodymyr, the ruler of Kyiv. The icon had a reputation of working miracles.

First presented at the 21st International Congress of Byzantine Studies, London in 2006, by Waldemar Deluga from the Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University, Warsaw, Poland.
