#4 – Icons and the Mother of God


This month is the aniversary of the II Council of Nicea in 787. In this episode of Catholic: Under The Hood, I look back at that council, at some shocking parts of Church history, and why the council’s decisions remain important for us today.

I also open a new segment of the show called “In The Icon Corner”, looking at the famous icon of Our Lady of Vladimir. Plus there’s a great song by Kevin Reeves called “Shine” which is available from the Podsafe Music Network.

You can find further information about the II Council of Nicea in the Catholic Encyclopedia and can find the documents of II Nicea in the Medieval Sourcebook.

If you are interested in getting a copy of the icon of Our Lady of Vladimir for your own private prayer. You can purchase one from the Saint Isaac of Syria Skete.
