About: matushka constantina
- A struggling Orthodox Christian, the wife of a deacon (called "matushka" in the Russian tradition), student of theology, painter of icons, and the author of The Scent of Holiness: Lessons from a Women's Monastery. Although originally from the Maritimes (Atlantic Canada), my husband and I currently live in Greece. I have recently received my Master's in Theology from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. My thesis is entitled: The Theological Presuppositions of the Orthodox Iconographer According to the Canons of the Stoglav Sobor (Moscow, 1551).
