A usual habbit of Skopjan propagandists is to use Orthodox icons found in churches in modern FYROM as ‘evidence’ of their culture. In reality this is far from truth. The vast majority of churches in FYROM contain iconographies done by Greek iconographies centuries ago. Just a few examples are:
Monastery of St Naum
In around 1806, the wall decoration inside was fulfilled by the “son of painter Konstantinos from Korytsa” who paint the folowing “Entrance to Jerusalem”, “Jesus Christ”, “Gathering of Archangels” “Theotokos” (all of them of course in greek language)
Around 1889 the painter Stephanos from Lazaropolis was called to paint the already dark wall paintings of the church. All his representations were in Greek of course.
Church of Archangel Michael in the vilage Radonja, Stusko
Here we have wall paintings of 13th c. (Archangel Michael) in Greek, made by the Greek iconographers of North Macedonia at the same period.
