Before the Revolution of 1917, this image was in the diocesan women’s convent in Serpukhov. The following information regarding its origin has come down to us.
Ven. Varlaam, who lived in the 14th century and was a disciple of St. Alexis, Metropolitan of Moscow, once was granted a vision of an icon on which was depicted the Most Holy Virgin’s Entry into the Temple. Holy Hierarch St. Alexis then ordered that an icon like the one described in the vision of St. Varlaam be painted.  The Icon was painted and installed in the stone church dedicated to the Entry of the Mother of God, in the Monastery of the Lord, founded in Serpukhov by St. Varlaam.  Since 1377, when it was painted, it has been revered as miraculous.
