Parts of a Triptych with St. Pereskeve, the Resurrection, and the Ascension


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description In what was the central panel of this triptych is St. Paraskeve, or in Russian Piatnitsa. In Russia, this third-century Greek martyr, whose name means "preparation" and "Friday", came to symbolize Good Friday and the Passion. She is shown here holding a scroll with the first words of the Nicene Creed: "I believe in one God". On the right panel are the Resurrection (Harrowing of Hell) and Ascension. Above St. Pareskeve are the Holy Trinity (Genesis 18:1-15), cherubim, and the Holy Face.
