One of Europe's leading iconographers provides a lavishly illustrated introduction to the history, meaning and purpose of Christian icons.

A number of famous icons of Christ, the Holy Trinity, Mary and the Saints are explored in depth and in relation to scripture, liturgy and early Christian writings. A deeply inspiring book that will give a lifetime's pleasure.
