Icon of the Mother of God of the Akathist

Commemorated on January 12

The "Akathist" Icon of the Mother of God is on the iconostasis of the Hilandar monastery's katholikon. It is known as the "Akathist" Icon because, during a fire at the katholikon in 1837 an Akathist was being read before the icon, and it remained unharmed, to the joy of the monks.

This icon should not be confused with the Zographou Icon "Of the Akathist" (October 10).
