9780961854553: The Art of the Icon: A Theology of Beauty

A 'summa on beauty' by this great Orthodox Theologian. First, a presentation on the biblical and patristic vision of beauty, applied then to contemporary movements in art. A 'theology of the icon' from a personal point of view, as well as in the context of the Church. Finally, the author includes a section and commentaries on 10 icons, from Riblev's Holy Trinity to the Novgorodian Angel.

About the Author:

Paul Evdokimov (1902-1970) was a professor at St Sergius Theological Institute in Paris, Director of the Center of Orthodox Studies and served as the Director of the Ecumenical Institute in Bossey, Geneva. He has been appropriately called "a theological bridge between East and West" because he brings patristic insights to bear upon modern situations.
