Liturgy of Church Fathers

Dionisy's frescoes. Liturgy of Church Fathers

Symbolic representation of the Divine Liturgy thematically agrees with its location on the altar wall. There are eight priests who conduct the liturgy in front of the altar that is painted on the altar window. They all wear episcopal robes and hold scrolls with the texts of prayers that are a part of the liturgy.
The composition is supplemented with figures of priests on eastern pillars (Metropolitans Alexius and Peter, James, brother of Jesus) and in the northern altar apse (Leonty of Rostov).
