Windows into Heaven: The Icons and Spirituality of Russia [Hardcover]

Simon Jenkins


Available from these sellers.



Book Description

May 2001 Art & Spirit
In series with Black Angels (on the Ethiopian Orthodox church) this book is both a gloriously illustrated art book exploring the unique relationship between one of the oldest and largest Christian churches on earth and its associated art form, the icon, and an enriching, inspirational collection of prayers, writings, music and liturgy. These hauntingly beautiful paintings, whose significance has for many years been overlooked in the west, are a powerful witness to the enduring traditions of the Orthodox church throughout the centuries. For Orthodox Christians, icons provide a window into another, spiritual world and offer an uplifting focus for meditation and prayer. This thoughtful book offers an introduction tracing the history, concerns and contribution of the Russian tradition.
