Theology of the Icon, Volume One

Special!
   
Leonid Ouspensky
revised translation by Anthony Gythiel
with selections translated by Elizabeth Meyendorff

Volume One of Theology of the Icon

“Why does the Church attribute such a great importance to the icon? The icon is not just a simple image, nor a decoration, nor even an illustration of Holy Scripture. It is something greater. It is an object of worship and an integral part of the liturgy. The Church sees in its holy image not simply one of the aspects of Orthodox teaching, but the expression of Orthodoxy in its totality, the expression of Orthodoxy as such. The icon is one of the manifestations of the holy Tradition of the Church, similar to the written and oral traditions. ...[T]he ‘icon,’ according to the teaching of the Church, corresponds entirely to the ‘word’ of Scripture.”
