The icon is used as an aid to devotion and has been venerated by orthodox Christians in the Byzantine and Eastern Church since the 12th century.
The Russian Orthodox Church together with the Churches of Greec, Romania, Bulgaria and Serbia, as well as the ancient churches in Africa such as the Coptic, Syrian and Ethiopian Church do not recognise the authority of the Pope in Rome. They use elaborate and archaic forms of service and all of them produce painted icons of different sorts, which are still used to invoke divine protection.
