    Does anyone know WHO this is, or what it says?

    I recently purchased this picture at an Antique store here in the United States.

    I do not speak/read Russian, but does ANYONE know who these 3 men are, or what this says (in English)?

    Here is a link to the picture: http://twitpic.com/100818

    THANKS!
    Dusty

    This picture is a part of an icon (or of a reproduction of an icon). The text you meant is inscriptions in Old Church Slavonic language. They're read :1) 'Holy hierarch Basil', 2) 'Holy hierarch John', 3)''Holy hierarch Gregory' (left to right)

    This is a traditional theme "Three holy hierarchs'. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Holy_Hierarchs

    I hope you won't put it up in a profane place.
