#6 – Praying with Icons

This week we look more at the theology of the icon and the spirituality of the iconographer. Learn how you can integrate icons into your own prayer life. We will also be looking at St. Andrei Rublev, one of the most famous iconographers and his icon of the Holy Trinity as we take another trip to the Icon Corner.

There are a couple of good sources available for those interested in icons and iconography. Jim Forest’s book “Praying with Icons” and Maria Giovanna Muzj’s “Transfiguration” each offers some good advice on adding icons to your spiritual life.

On the Internet, you can find a good basic articles on icons and St. Andrei Rublev on Wikipedia. There is a good list of icon sites on the web at Icons and Iconography.


Our musical interlude is a Russian hymn – “O Gladsome Light” sung by the Monks and Metropolitan Choirs of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra from the CD Russian Orthodox Chants available from magnatune.com.
