Item Description...
A comprehensive guide to the ancient Byzantine art form of icons--which were meant to convey Christian truths in a visual form--covers their history; their craftsmen, donors, and patrons; the materials and techniques involved in their creation; their relationship with prayer; and where to find them in galleries and museums worldwide. Original.

Publishers Description
For anyone who is intrigued by icons, Sacred Doorways is the place to begin. There are books on icons from a theological perspective and books from an art history perspective, but Sacred Doorways provides the first guidebook for the general reader that is both comprehensive and accessible.

Beautiful Yet Simple  Jul 5, 2007
I really liked this book. It is very well written and had a nice way of putting complex ideas into really simple terms.I would say it is the perfect book to give to someone who is trying to find out what iconography is all about.
Sacred Doorways reviewed  Jul 4, 2007
This book helped me to understand the importance of the icon in the Orthodox faith. There was an extensive overview of the history, meaning and technique involved with icons. I have ordered additional books about the Eastern Orthodox church as a result.
RTurba - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil  Nov 9, 2006
This is a book for history and art students. The text is very hard. If you are looking for a book with a lot of pictures....believe me buy other...
Understanding of Icons - Art & Religion  Jun 11, 2006
Linette Martin an Anglican artist has written a very good book for artists and a satisfactory book for those who are trying to understand icons from a religious perspective.

This is a very detailed art book which explains how the icon artists approached their work. Ms. Martin ties the art techniques of icons with what she believes are the religious view point of the icon painters.

If you are a searcher, one who is looking to convert to the Eastern Church, one who is trying to understand the mystical roles of icons in the religious life of Orthodox Christians, then this book will in my opinion not meet your needs.

This is not an easy read. I would say that this book is more of an advanced guide to icons, not a beginner's book, for one who is just starting to investigate Orthodox Christianity.

If you are an artist, trying to expand your knowledge of this religious art form, then I can highly recommend this work.
Great Introduction  Apr 25, 2006
This is a really great introduction to what the symbols, colors, and items mean in iconography. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in iconography.
