Veneration of the Icons[edit]

"Traditionally, when first entering the house, an Orthodox Christian would venerate the icons before greeting the members of the house." How does one venerate the icons? J S Ayer (talk) 01:25, 26 February 2009 (UTC)


The custom of lighting candles in front of the icons is not discussed on the Russian version of this page. Can you discuss it with the author there and work out whether it's an omission over there or what? (talk) 15:29, 14 May 2013 (UTC)


It translates as 'Red Corner', not 'Icon Corner'. See the Russian page: Красный угол

Odinism and Rodnovery[edit]

Also used in Odinism and Rodnovery. In Odinism and Rodnovery the 'Red Corner' is the place of the home shrine, where a small home for the Chury (Chur) are hanged or put Saints, embroidered towels and cleaned. Usually the red corner in the house is located across from the entrance on the east side. When entering the house the neighbor living Aboriginal descent Rodnoverie removes his hat, and turned to face the red corner with a bow, saith: "Peace to this house! Gods and ancestral guardian spirits - reverence! Goi!"[1]

I'm really not sure if that belongs in this article. The scope of this article seems to be specifically about the Eastern Christian custom, not about any and all religious shrines or prayer spaces that anyone of any religion might have in the home. I've left the section about Odinism and Rodnovery as it is for now, but I feel like it probably belongs in a separate article. Ohff (talk) 05:40, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
