Hi, could you please tell me about the icon featured on the flyer, or direct me to where I might learn more about it? I am interested in the artist and time period. Also, I would like to know the English translation of the writing around Arius.

Thank you!
Glory to God in the highest. Here we have the faithful lovers of truth ready to counter the tyrannical rule of the EP. May God give them grace to speak the truth in love, awaken the faithful and bring illumination to our Patriarch in Turkey.
