Details

Icons, 'sacred pages' which convey the message of salvation to us, are receiving renewed interest in Western culture, in contrast to the Eastern churches in which they have always held a privileged place. In this book, rare and precious oriental icons have been assembled to tell the life of the Virgin Mary, the Theotokos (Mother of God). Each four-colour icon is accompanied by a guide to its significance, together with texts from the Bible and from the Fathers of the Eastern Church - sequenced according to the story of our salvation, from the Old to the New Testament. This book is truly a contemplative encounter with the 'most precious treasure of the earth' by which we are led by this 'woman clothed with the sun' to penetrate more deeply into the mystery of her Son.
