The original decorations were undertaken by Master Theodore around 1232 -1233, while another painter worked in the monastery sometime before 1436. He was known as the painter of the paschal cycle. The Characteristics of Coptic iconization follow certain symbolism that carries…

It is hard to say if one can interpret this painting as a proof for linothorax armour in (early) Medieval Nubia or if the artist just copied the motive from a Byzantine painting. Also note the (for Nubians) unusual shield.

It seems altogether impossible to imagine that God can direct the will and yet that it should…
