The Saviour (“Image of Edessa”), Novgorodian icon - 1100th

Novgorodian school of icon-painting was very specific (we posted some examples before). Because, yes, medieval Russia was not a united country.  There were a number of extremely independent lands, named princedoms (“knyajestvo" in Russian). Some of them had traditionally strong government. Some of them, like Novgorod, were republics.
For me, Novgorod of that period had much in common with some medieval Italian city-states like Florence. Thus, Novgorod is a very extraordinary story. Democracy, trade, and, of course, wealth - they created truly amazing and unique art.

I was trying to find a different way to write a ‘claim of independence,’ so I wrote “declaration of independence” and it took me a few seconds to realize why I couldn’t use that.
