Theotokos, Vladimir-The Vladimir Icon of the Mother of God receives its name from the Russian City of Vladimir where it was for so many years. There is a tradition that it was painted by St. Luke, though this is doubtful. We do know that it was in Jerusalem as early as 450 when it went to Constantinople. In the early part of the 12th century, it was sent to Prince Yuri Dolgoruky in Kiev as a gift. Later, in 1155 his son, the Prince Andrew Bogoluibsky, a great venerator of the Mother of God.
