Product Description

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 transfiguration in Christ, St. Theodore's message on On the Holy Icons remains remarkably pertinent.
