Paul of Tarsus? Saul the Apostle?

(Note to the Orthodox Icons group, I don't know if this is appropriate as it is from an Anglican-alinged Church, although the note at the bottom right assures us it was produced in the "traditional" manner, which I assume means acheiropoieta.)

 

I have to admit I'm a bit unsure of the relevance of juxtaposing two entirely different periods - Late Modern with the 1st Century east Mediterreanean - and I don't sense the same effect as with other icons, but I cheerfully respect the sentiments.

 

Seen in Old St Paul's Scottish Episcopal Church, Edinburgh.
