When the Moors migrated to Russia, many of them converted to Christianity. Can anyone help with the translation of this piece? I believe it to be Russian, however sometimes I lean towards Egyptian.
This is the Nativity of John the Forerunner. His father, Zechariah is in the back writing his name. I cannot make out who the bishops on each side are. This is definitely Russian, and not Coptic.
Thank you so much Akemner. Any idea of the time it was made?
No real good idea. The hand positions are strange, as is the Crown on the one bishop. Probably mid to late 18th century, but a real expert would know, though.
