Product Description

In this compelling story of discovery and spiritual adventure, Sister Wendy, a contemplative nun and beloved art commentator, travels from England, to Rome, to Ukraine, and finally to a remote monastery in Sinai, to view the earliest icons of Mary. These are among the few that survived the wholesale destruction of icons in the early eighth century. In contrast with the familiar and magnificent icons of later history, these early icons have a haunting simplicity and unfamiliar spiritual power. They come to us from a time closer to that of Christ, when faith was still alive with wonder, and possibilities were infinite. Jacketed hardcover.
