Details

Paul Hetherington, translator and editor

This detailed book is among the oldest of the Greek narrative patternbooks and instruction texts extant.

A classic hermeneia (literally, interpretation or expounding), this large format, small-print gem includes introductory sections on icon painting techniques, and describes hundreds of figures of Saints, Old and New Testament events, parables, Feast days, decoration of churches, colour, etc.

Detailed appendices makes this a reference and source document par excellence.

Compiled on Mt. Athos, Greece from 1730-1734 from ancient sources by Dionysius of Fourna.
