Theotokos of Three Hands-This icon originally belonged to St. John of Damascus. In the 8th century he was the Prime Minister to the Caliph of Damascus. John was thoroughly grounded in the Holy Scriptures and patristic tradition. At that time the Byzantine Emperor was Leo,III the Isaurian, the Iconoclast. John had written letters to counter the influence of Leo and in doing so Leo had treasonous letters forged with John?s signature and sent them to the Caliph. The Caliph had John?s right hand cut off.
