Icons and Saints of the Eastern Orthodox Church

   
Alfredo Tradigo
Translated by Stephen Sartarelli

A Volume of A Guide to Imagery

“The twentieth century witnessed a remarkable renaissance of the Russian icon. Important restorations revealed their original colors; in-depth studies recount their history and meaning; the diaspora of intellectuals and iconographers from Soviet Russia spread Slavic art and culture around the world. The purpose of this Guide to Imagery is to try to catalogue this vast heritage of images according to iconographic type and subject, from the most ancient icons at the Monastery of Saint Catherine on Mount Sinai to those from Mount Athos, Constantinople, Crete, and the Balkans; from the schools of Pskov, Novgorod, and Moscow to those of the northern Russian monasteries; from the earliest monastic communities in the Egyptian desert near Thebes to the monasteries of the Solovetski islands in the White Sea. Behind them are fascinating stories of apostles, ascetic martyrs, and ‘fools for Christ,’ and the eyes of saints gazing through us, into the next world.”
