  3. Icon and Devotion

    Icon and Devotion

    $99.00

    "Icon and Devotion" offers the first extensive presentation in English of the making and meaning of Russian icons. The craft of icon-making is set into the context of forms of worship that emerged in the Russian Orthodox Church in the mid-seventeenth century. Oleg Tarasov shows how icons have held a special place in Russian consciousness because they represented idealized images of Holy Russia. He also looks closely at how and why icons were made. Wonder-working saints and the leaders of such religious schisms as the Old Believers appear in these pages, which are illustrated with miniature paintings, lithographs and engravings never before published in the English-speaking world. By tracing the artistic vocabulary, techniques and working methods of icon painters, Tarasov shows how icons have been integral to the history of Russian art, influenced by folk and mainstream currents alike. As well as articulating the specifically Russian piety they invoke, he analyzes the significance of icons in the cultural life of modern Russia in the context of popular prints and poster design.

  6. Icons and Saints of the Eastern Orthodox Church

    Icons and Saints of the Eastern Orthodox Church

    $46.95

    "Far from being a form of idolatry, the icon - rooted in a solid theology that has passed through the gauntlet of ideological as well as physical strife (violent persecutions, destruction of images) - emerged victorious in the year 843, with the Triumph of Orthodoxy. The victory of the icon is the victory of Orthodoxy itself against the early heresies that, in denying the incarnation of Christ, also rejected any representation of his image. It thus becomes clear that what people worship is in the icon are not the wood and colours, but what it represents as it travels a path from the visible to the invisible, the material to the spiritual." - from the introduction.
