Saints Boris and Gleb, Russia

Saints Boris and Gleb (Christian names Roman and David) were canonized in 1071 and honoured as martyrs by the Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic churches. Their burial place is the Church of St. Basil in Vychhorod, Russia.
This painting can be found in the Russian Museum, St. Petersburg.
The card was sent by Irina for the WiP Letter S swap.
