Description:
A Beginner's Guide to Icons
Author: Linette Martin
ISBN: 1557253072
Publisher: Paraclete Press, October, 2002
Size: 18 x 203 x 137 mm (0.71 x 8.00 x 5.40 in.), 259 pages, Trade Paperback

For centuries, icons—known as "sacred doorways" into the spiritual world—have been a central part of worship in the Eastern Orthodox Church. But more recently, people of all faith traditions have become intrigued by the beauty and mystery of icons. Today, icons can be found in churches of various denominations, and viewed in museums around the world.

For all those who wish they understood more about icons, Sacred Doorways will serve as an essential guidebook. Linette Martin explains the history of icons, the materials and techniques used in creating them, and the visual language of icons. But beyond providing a historical and artistic background, Martin also writes as a fellow spiritual pilgrim, enriching our understanding of the Orthodox spirituality that is celebrated and expressed through this ancient art form.
