Orthodox tradition teaches that Prince Abgar of Edessa, afflicted with leprosy, sought Christ`s healing. Christ unable to go see Abgar, wiped his face with a cloth upon which His image appeared. Christ sent the "Holy Napkin" to Abgar, who was healed. This napkin was preserved for many centuries and has been copied in iconography and religious jewelry.
