St Nicholas, one of the most popular saints of Eastern Orthodoxy, is shown as the Miracle Worker holding a codex and flanked above by John the Baptist, his name inscribed in Greek on his halo, and by the Virgin. This type of image apparently developed in Novgorod in the fifteenth century where the thin paint and pale colouring of the background and of St Nicholas's face and robes are typical.
