Mikhail Vasilyevich Nesterov - The Vision to the Youth Bartholomew

Mikhail Vasilyevich Nesterov - The Vision to the Youth Bartholomew

The painting was created in the period 1889-1890, and the plot is taken from the Life of St. Sergius:

“Once my father sent Bartholomew to fetch horses in the field. On the way, he met an Angel sent by God in monastic form: the elder was standing under an oak tree in the middle of the field and praying. Bartholomew approached him and, bowing down, waited for the end of the elder's prayer. He blessed the boy, kissed him and asked what he wanted. Bartholomew replied: "With all my soul I want to learn to read and write, Holy Father, pray for me to God so that He will help me learn to read." The monk fulfilled the request of Bartholomew, lifted up his prayer to God and, blessing the boy, said to him: "From now on, God gives you, my child, to comprehend literacy, you will surpass your brothers and peers." At the same time, the elder took out a vessel and gave Bartholomew a particle of prosphora: “Take, child, and eat,” he said. "This is given to you as a sign of the grace of God and for the understanding of Holy Scripture." Pravoslavie.Ru.
