A History of Icon Painting: Sources • Traditions • Present Day

   
Lilia Evseyeva, Natalia Komashko, Mikhail Krasilin, Hegumen Luka (Golovkov), Elena Ostashenko, Olga Popova, Engelina Smirnova, Anna Yakovleva, Irina Yazykova
Translated by Kate Cook

“Icons are an integral part of the Orthodox Tradition. It is hard to imagine an Orthodox church[...]and service, or an Orthodox believer’s home and life without them. In birth and death, departing on a long journey or beginning a new enterprise, he or she is accompanied by these holy images, icons. Images appeared in Christian art from the very beginning, but the icon developed together with the liturgy and dogma. The doctrine of the veneration of icons was adopted by the Seventh Ecumenical Council in 787, which crowned the great age of the Ecumenical Councils, and was consolidated in 843 by the victory of the veneration of icons. Ever since then the feast of the Triumph of Orthodoxy has been celebrated, because icons have become the affirmation of the very principle of Orthodoxy. The Orthodox Church regards icons not merely as a form of church art, albeit the main one, but as the visible expression of the Orthodox faith[...].”
