"On the Holy Icons: St. Theodore the Studite

Popular Patristics Series Volume 6

To many modern Christians the question of icon veneration may seem a marginal issue in theology. To St Theodore the Studite, writing in the midst of the iconoclastic controversy of the eighth and ninth centuries, it was clear that iconoclasm is a serious error, which alienates its followers from God as much as any other heresy. That is to say, rejection of Christian veneration of images effectively denies God's incarnation, which alone makes human salvation possible. If Christ could not be portrayed, then He was not truly man, and humanity was not truly united with God in Him.

In our own day, when the material world so often is regarded as mere matter, incapable of being transfigured in Christ, St Theodore's message remains remarkably pertinent.

"This is a welcome book: a convenient and inexpensive version of a patristic text of seminal importance in the history of Byzantine theology..." -Robert Taft, S.J., Orientalia Christiana Periodica

This text was translated by Catharine P. Roth."
