I have tried to read the witting but its too blurred for me to make it out , the only part i could see was Georgios (Saint George ) as mentioned
above. Given that the Russian Orthodox is still based on the Old Testament Trinity as they did not change to the Gregorian calender.
You might perhaps want to research "Panagio Tafos" which has been under the jurisdiction of the Greek Orthodox.
The Orthodox Church is one.
There are Russians,Greek,Coptic,Ethiopian,Japanese,Chinese etc...
All ONE body, but many branches.
All believe in the 7 ecumenical councils of the Early Christianity Church.
The Calendar issue is another story!
The Old Testament as well as The New Testament are BOTH important to a Christian.
Without the Old Testament, we would not have the New Testament!
The 'Icon of the Trinity...the three angels are a Pre-figuration of the Father,Son and Holy Spirit.
As are MANY similar Old Testament.
The Old Testament deals mainly with God’s promise to give mankind a Saviour,through prophecy,commandments,Prayer,fasting,and pre figurations of what
is to come!
The New Testament is the fullfillment of the coming of the Saviour..Lord Jesus Christ.
Panagios Tafos...Holy Sepulchre
Also Holy Fire in Jerusalem~
