Holy Fools to Wonder Workers will feature 30 icons from the Museum’s collection that are not regularly on view. Visitors to the exhibit will be able to explore different types of saints celebrated by the Orthodox Church, from Prophets of the Old Testament to the Monastics living in rural Russia. Popular saints such as Nicholas and George will be shown alongside those who are lesser known but equally fascinating figures. There is Simeon the Stylite, who lived for many years atop a pillar, and Saint Mary of Egypt, a repentant sinner who lived alone in the deserts of Egypt.

These two important Imperial Presentation icons by Faberge and Kurliukov, were created as gifts for the 1908 wedding of Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna the Younger (1890-1958) to Prince Willem of Sweden, Duke of Sodermanland.
The “Feodorovskaya Mother of God” by Faberge, was a gift from the St. Petersburg Nobility Assembly, and an icon of the “Image Made Without Hands” by Kurliukov in the pan-Slavic style, was a gift from the Moscow Merchants’ Association.
These two icons represent the differences in style and political intentions of the two groups of donors. Gifts to Russian Grand Duchesses were known for their extravagance.

“HAJJI MAMA” OR THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY HAJJ TO JERUSALEM
A lecture by Valentina Izmirlieva, Chair of the Department of Slavic Languages at Columbia University
Respondents: Fordham professors Sarit Kattan Gribetz (theology) and Ebru Turan (history)
From the 17th to 19th centuries, in the European part of the Ottoman Empire, some Orthodox Christians modeled their pilgrimage to Jerusalem on the Muslim hajj to Mecca. They even called themselves hajjis, using an Islam ichonorific, but insisted on the Christian ethos of their quest.This lecture will show how the Orthodox “hajj” emerged within Muslim Ottoman culture as a Christian family project and as a surprising vehicle for female empowerment.

Slow To Anger: Anger is a very powerful emotion. Everyone deals with anger differently. We are all affected by it personally, and especially now, globally. In James 1: 19-20, we are taught My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.”
Join us as we explore the dynamics of this topic presented by father/daughter team Dr. John Dalack & Khouriyee Laila Ellias
