Anany's name in history: The Bible tells about the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, who was a pagan and ordered to somehow build a golden idol, sixty cubits high. After that, he gathered all his grandees, confidants and subjects, and ordered them to worship the new golden idol. As soon as the sounds of trumpets, flutes, flutes, harps were heard, all fell down before the idol and bestowed on him divine honors. And only Ananias, Azarius and Michael - the young Christians - did not want to worship the idol and stood straight. Enraged, Nebuchadnezzar ordered them to be thrown into a burning stove, which they melted seven times hotter than usual. The youths were brought into the burning mouth of the furnace, but the fire did not touch them, for they were under the auspices of the angel. The young men came out of the fire alive and unharmed. Delighted with the devotion to the faith and courage of these young people and amazed at the miracle that took place, Nebuchadnezzar ordered them to be elevated to the highest government posts and now forbade anyone to blaspheme the Christian god on pain of death.
