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.
