Lady of Kazan, also called Theotokos of Kazan (Russian: Казанская Богоматерь),
was a holy icon of the highest stature within the Russian Orthodox Church,
representing the Virgin Mary as the protector and patron of the city of Kazan.
Copies of the image are also venerated in the Catholic Church. It was
considered a palladium of Russia for centuries, until its theft and likely
destruction in 1904. Two major Kazan Cathedrals, in Moscow and in St.
Petersburg, are consecrated to Our Lady of Kazan, as are numerous churches
throughout the land. Her feast days are July 21 and November 4 (which is also
the Day of National Unity).
and venerated copies have been displayed at the Kazan Cathedral of Moscow, at
Yaroslavl, and at St. Petersburg.
