Christ the Almighty

Christ the Almighty (Pantocrator) is the main iconographic type of Jesus Christ and is often encountered in Greek and Old Russian art. Icons of Christ the Almighty first appeared in the Dormition Cathedral in the Moscow Kremlin in the fourteenth century, rapidly spreading to other major Russian churches. Such works were accompanied by inscriptions calling Jesus the King of Glory, underscoring the image of Christ as a king who will return to earth and judge mankind on the Day of Wrath.
