This icon from Mt. Athos gets its name from the Iveron (Iberian) Monastery. St. Luke is also given credit for this icon. In 1648, it became famous in Russia after Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich had a chapel built for a copy of the icon. According to legend, 365 fathers of the Iveron Monastery held an all night service.
