Orthodox Iconography: Four essays dealing with the History of Orthodox Iconography, the Iconographic Decoration of Churches, the Functions of Icons, and the Theology and Aesthetics of Byzantine Iconography. In addition, three Appendixes containing Authoritative Early Christian Texts on Icons, explanations of the Techniques of Iconography, and a discussion of Two Russian Books on Icons

   
by Constantine Cavarnos

“The texts that make up the present volume were written at different times, and without the idea of constituting this book. I have brought them here together in order to make them available in a more useful form. They deal with various aspects of one and the same subject, and present a fairly comprehensive, even though brief, discussion of the topic of holy icons from the standpoint of Eastern Orthodox Christianity.”
