Monks Fighting in Battle

This cartoon is about the Battle of Kulikovo on the Feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos in 1380, which was the turning point in liberating the Russian people from the yoke of Tatars. Prince Dmitry Ivanovich Donskoy visited St. Sergius of Radonezh and received his blessing to go to war. St. Sergius prophesied a victory despite his disadvantage in numbers and sent two schemamonks (Oslyabya and Peresvet) with the prince to participate in the battle.
