About the book

This full-color monograph by scholar Rostyslav Zabashta is dedicated to the image of Onuphrius the Great —an early Christian ascetic hermit, one of the most revered saints. At the center of the author’s attention is the reason for the expansion and rise of his cult in Ukrainian lands and the particularities of the iconographic representation of his image in painting, sculpture, rock carvings, decorative art, and so on. The setting is the high middle ages to the end of the modern era, but particular emphasis is placed on illuminating the spiritual and artistic ritual practices of the 17th–18th centuries
