Kasperovskaya Icon of the Mother of God. (Касперовская икона). This depiction of the Mother of God appeared in Russia in the mid-18th century, having been brought from Serbia. It is somewhat similar to the Korsun Icon of the Mother of God. The icon began to be particularly revered in February 1840, after its renovation in the house of a certain Luliania Kasperova, who lived in the Kherson Gubernia. One night while praying, she noticed the faces of the Mother of God and Christ had became bright and new again. Soon the icon was recognized as miracle-working. In 1853-1855, the icon protected the city of Odessa from enemy troops.
