I am in need of an image of the Theotokos under the Armenian title of Our Lady of Nareg. Anyone familiar with this or aware of a site that depicts it? I've not been able to find anything.

Subdeacon Bill or Ghosty?

Many years,

Neil

Michael,

Thank you for both of those - very lovely icons of Our Lady of Soufanieh, neither of which I've seen previously - but, unfortunately, no.

The Armenians venerate the Theotokos under a title of Our Lady of Nareg (or, sometimes, Narek). It also happens to be the patronal title of the Armenian Catholic Eparchy for the US and Canada.

I have never seen an icon of the particular title, so I don't know to which style of Theotokos icons it relates (if to any of the common ones) and I've not been able to find it on any of the Armenian sites. I'm hoping that one of our Armenian brothers will be familiar with it and able to point me toward a depiction. Otherwise, I'll send off a query to the Eparchy.

Many years,

Neil

Michael,

Thank you very much. I hadn't thought to search other than English blush - I am ashamed to admit. We Americans are so parochial.

Many years,

Neil

9 years later... grin

It was painted in 1958 in Brooklyn, N.Y. by Ariel Agemian.

The image is enshrined above the altar in the Pontifical Armenian College in Rome, Italy: link.

Copies are enshrined in St Mark Armenian Catholic Church in Wynnewood, PA and St Gregory the Illuminator Armenian Catholic Church in Toronto, Canada.

Bishop Mikael Mouradian of the Armenian Catholic Eparchy of the USA and Canada recently gave copies of the icon of Our Lady of Nareg as presents to the choir of Saint Gregory the Illuminator Armenian Catholic cathedral: photo.
