Mary is almost as important in Eastern Orthodoxy as she is in Catholicism. Parravicino here reproduces some of the most beautiful icons of all time plus makes comments on spirituality, theology, art, and liturgy so that you can enter into the symbolism of this fascinating world.
Rare and precious Oriental icons, some created in mosaics, are arranged to tell the story of Mary. The accompanying text offers comments and explanations of the images and their symbols. A life of Mary as presented in the writings of the great fathers of the Orthodox Church and in the liturgical rites of the Byzantine traditions is also included.
Its visual impact and beauty, as well as its different perspective, makes Mary, Mother of God: Her Life in Icons and Scripture both a treasured addition to one's personal library and a lovely gift idea. The explanation of the symbolism of the icons and the lovely images themselves will serve as inspiration for meditation.
