This is the oldest Russian icon that was - according to legends - painted by Luke The Evangelist on the board of table at which Jesus, Maria and Joseph have got their dinner. The icon was brought from Jerusalem to Constantinople in the middle of the 5th century. About 1131 the Greek Patriarch of Constantinople sent the icon as a gift to Grand Duke Yury Dolgoruky, one of the Ruriks.
