Description

Where did icons come from? Why do we have icons in the Church? Why are they painted so differently from other pictures? What do the parts of an icon symbolize?Answering these and many other questions, The Story of Icons is an excellent introduction to the meaning of icons in the Church and the part they play in worship. Author Mary Paloumpis Hallick tells the story of the origins of icons, from the catacombs to the iconoclastic conflict and the triumph of icons that ended in the Sunday of Orthodoxy. With the help of full-color historic and modern Byzantine icons, she explains why icons are painted as they are. The second half of the book is devoted to the icons for the feast days of Christ and the Virgin Mary, teaching how to ‰ÛÏread‰۝ the icons for the story that each one tells. With a glossary of terms, younger readers (ages 8‰ÛÒ13) can explore the world of icons on their own or with the assistance of a teacher or parent. The Story of Icons is a valuable tool at home and in the church for teaching the Faith.
