The Song of Solomon

I have never seen any equivalents but there are two beautiful frescos from the Monastery of St. John Makrinou, Megara (Greece) which depict two verses from the Song of Solomon in the Old Testement.

Christ is shown in the icons, as the Bridegroom and thus they are interpreting the beautiful poetry of the Song as "eros" for Jesus Christ. These are a beautiful expression of the person of Christ and His Love for us, and the love that the righteous show Him in return!

The Song of Solomon is the greatest song in the Scripture and is also a beautiful piece of poetry to read entering into Great Lent ...

May God have mercy on us, so that before our end we might be able to offer an infinitesimally small sign of our love to Christ! Amen!
