Iconography and Saints

Inspired by the documentary, PISTEVO (http://theartofbelief.org), the Orthodox Christian Network will be featuring iconography and the Saints of the Orthodox Church. Iconography, the centuries-old tradition of depicting faith through images, was the primary means of teaching Christianity until written records were formally canonized as the Holy Scriptures. Please join us in raising awareness of iconography as a window into heaven & finding and fostering one’s faith.
