DESCRIPTION:

This original study concisely presents some major principles of Orthodox Christianity, and how those principles are expressed (using Russian examples), in several of the Church's sacred arts: Liturgy, icons and architecture. Intended for the general reader, Orthodox and non-Orthodox, this study provides a concise exploration of the interrelationships between Orthodox thought and sacred arts. The author "translates" complex theological concepts so that they are understandable by all. The 24 photos have detailed descriptions and include some subjects rarely seen by Americans. This book provides an excellent introduction to the Orthodox Church, and is ideal for adult classes, study-groups and college courses.
