Compiled on Mount Athos from 1730-1734 from ancient and contemporary sources, this book is among the oldest of the extant "Greek-style" narrative patternbooks and instruction texts. A classic "hermeneia" (literally "interpretation" or "expounding"), this oversize, small-print work includes introductary sections on icon painting techniques and describes hundreds of figures of saints, Old and New Testament events, parables, feast days, and decorations of churches.

About the Author:

Paul Hetherington, the translator of this Greek text, is an historian in England, a researcher of byzantine topics and a student of classic materials. Dionysius of Fourna was a monk of the Greek Church, living on Mt. Athos, and an excellent master iconographer. His icon paintings are still very much admired both on Mt. Athos and in several cities in Greece.
