The Art of Seeing

Paradox and Perception in Orthodox Iconography

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


This book studies icons and iconographic themes in the light of Orthodox theology, making special use of perspectives and insights from the patristic interpretation of Scripture. The four chapters here lucidly treat diverse topics, including the enigmatic face of Christ, the paradoxes of the Annunciation, the art of Chalcedon, the aesthetics of ambiguity, the art of kenosis, hagiographically oriented studies on St. George, Byzantine warrior saints, and the contemporary theology of the “icon screen.”
