    A Guide to Christian Iconography: Images, Symbols, and Texts Through the centuries, Christian artists drew their inspiration from scripture, saints' lives and Bible commentaries. Publisher Description This book examines ideas of spiritual nourishment as maintained chiefly by Patristic theologians –those who lived in Byzantium. It shows how a particular type of Byzantine frescoes and icons illustrated the views of Patristic thinkers on the connections between the heavenly and the earthly worlds.

    OTHER MEDIUMS FOR BYZANTINE ICONOGRAPHY AND SACRED ART This site addresses only egg tempera painting, which was the primary and classic medium used for historic icons, and which has become my preferred medium. Historically, beautiful icons and religious art were made in numerous other forms and mediums, including mosaics. However, the Byzantine Iconoclasm refers to two periods in the history of the Byzantine Empire when the use of religious images or icons was opposed by religious and imperial authorities. The “First Iconoclasm,” as it is sometimes called, lasted between about CE and CE, during the Isaurian Dynasty.

    Iconography as an academic art historical discipline developed in the nineteenth-century in the works of scholars such as Adolphe Napoleon Didron (–), Anton Heinrich Springer (–), and Émile Mâle (–) all specialists in Christian religious art, which was the main focus of study in this period, in which French scholars were especially prominent.   The book Pictures of God: A Child's Guide to Understanding Icons is also helpful in explaining icons to children. (See bottom of this post for more info on Byzantine Icons) I explained that a mosaic is a picture or pattern made by arranging together small colored pieces of stone, tile, or glass. Some of the tiles in the Basilica of San Vitale.
