ICONS OF THE HOLY MONASTERY OF KARAKALLOU MOUNT ATHOS

Author: MONASTERY OF KARAKALLOU #: 8733

For the first time in its history Karakallou Monastery of Mount Athos is revealing its iconographic treasures to the general public. Karakallou Monastery, one of the oldest monasteries on Holy Mountain, is celebrating its millennium of uninterrupted coenobitic life with the publication of this richly illustrated volume devoted to its portable icons; thereby bringing to light a virtually unknown part of ancient Athonite culture and its spiritual heritage.

From among the hundreds of holy icons in the monastery`s possession, 152 were carefully selected for this edition. Historically, they span from the late 14th to the early 19th century and include masterpieces that are inaccessible to most of the monastery`s pilgrims. Quite significantly, the Karakallou monastery`s holdings feature the largest collection of works by Dionyssios of Fourna, a prominent byzantine iconographer of the 18th century.

THE AESTHETIC FACE OF BEING: ART IN THE THEOLOGY OF PAVEL FLORENSKY

Author: VICTOR BYCHKOV #: 10515
This work examines Florensky’s preoccupation with the centrality of art, specifically classical iconography, for the meaning of man. The work of Florensky in this field is arguably the basis and inspiration for the noted studies of Prince Evgeny Trubetskoi, which have served to retrieve the art of iconography from its romantic, nineteenth-century deformations and restore it to its classical and canonical form.

THE OPEN DOOR: ENTERING THE SANCTUARY OF ICONS AND PRAYER

Author: FREDERICA MATHEWES-GREEN #: 10516
Unlike many books of meditations on icons, this book presents a unique opportunity for readers to visit an imaginary church and see icons “in action” throughout the year—to stand alongside worshipers for whom the use of icons is a natural part of their devotional lives. Reproductions of icons on the book jacket and in the inside text allow the reader to view the icons that would be found in a typical contemporary Orthodox church, as Frederica Mathewes-Green explains their history and theology. Stories of saints and texts of the prayers appointed for the day enhance the devotional quality of the book. Anyone interested in understanding and “praying with” icons will benefit from this warmhearted, practical guide.

THE IMAGE OF GOD THE FATHER: ON ORTHODOX THEOLOGY AND ICONOGRAPHY

Author: STEVEN BIGHAM #: 10519
Fr Steven has given us a unique set of essays for edification, discussion and even comment and disagreement. His exposition on “God the Father” returns us to the roots of Orthodox iconography from which practitioners have strayed so completely, especially in recent centuries. Today, there is a tremendous interest in authentic iconography engendered by greater freedom to travel in such countries as Russia where eighteenth century icons of “God the Father” abound. Travelers see these icons and come back with many questions which Fr. Steven`s study answers. More important, the broad interest in traditional Christianity throughout the English-speaking world has generated this need to present authentic expression of the faith. This continues the tradition of the publisher and the author who have collaborated on translations of other worthy efforts to describe Orthodox iconography and spirituality.
