Western Saints Icon Project

St. Dunstan Ab. of Canterburry

St. Hubert of Liege (Belgium)

St. Boniface Equal to the Apostles and Enlightener of Germany

The Western Saints Icon Project has an extraordinary number (432!) of icons of western (pre-schism) saints. Icons of most western saints are rare and often impossible to find. Enjoy this site.

Thank you for posting the link to the Western Saints Icon Project. Unfortunately, I still cannot find an icon of Saint Declan. My husband and I named our son, Declan. I continue my search....

This is my first time commenting, but I enjoy reading your blog often.

Hi
This is Tanya from St. Vladimir's Seminary. I am looking for a collection of Icons of Western Orthodox Saints (English/Celtic) that we could borrow for an exhibit in our Library on Orthodox Education Day October 6, 2012. This year the theme of our Education Day is: Christian Themes in C.S. Lewis and JRR Tolkein. Please answer if you can help -- my email is tpenkrat@svots.edu.
