Wooden Icon of the Holy Martyr Anfisa of Rome


The martyr Anfisa suffered for Christ in Rome in the 5th century. She was the wife of a Roman dignitary.

On all icons she is depicted as a beautiful young woman. She believed in Christ and was baptized thanks to the preaching of St. Ambrose of Milan.

At this time, the Arian heresy spread widely throughout the empire. The founder of this heresy, Presbyter Arius, believed that Jesus Christ was only a mediator between God and the created world, and not the Son of God. This heresy was condemned by the First Ecumenical Council, but nevertheless acquired both its patrons and followers.

The mayor's wife Sunilda was a supporter of Arius. She invited Anfisa to be baptized in this heresy. The woman opposed this, and her husband, fearing the consequences of refusal, changed his faith. Saint Anfisa was executed. But heavenly punishment fell on both the unfaithful husband and Sunilda.


The icon is made by printing on a wooden board. Paints are mineral, do not fade with time. The thickness of the board is 2 cm. The board is covered with soil by hand. The image is covered with wax. Each icon has a metal mount on the back side so that you can hang the icon on the wall.

Our icons are made by Orthodox craftsmen. You can read more about the technology here:
