Description

Iconography, especially emanating from Eastern Christianity, has a certain allurement for Western Christians. It's foreign, exotic and unique. Yet, the perception of beauty in iconography is more than surface deep. It is manifested in the theological rationale for its creation, its focal, theological center, the ecclesiology expressed in it, and the role that it can play in the believer's liturgy of life. Through the examination of some key icons in the ecclesiological tradition and how to engage them, we will glimpse the beauty of iconography from these theological perspectives, thus evoking the beauty of the Triune God.
