Quick Overview

"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.
