For centuries, icons - known as 'sacred doorways' into the spiritual world - have been a central part of worship in the Eastern Orthodox Church. But more recently, people of all faith traditions have become intrigued by the beauty and mystery of icons. Today, icons can be found in churches of various denominations, and viewed in museums around the world.

This book is an invaluable introductory guide to identifying the figures represented in sacred images, understanding the meaning behind their gestures, the objects they hold, and the settings in which they are placed.

“‘Sacred Doorways’ is a unique and much–needed companion to the literature on icons. Martin conveys understanding and respect for classic Orthodox theology, while enriching our appreciation of icons by enabling us to encounter them as the physical, ‘incarnate’ entities that they are.” - Frederica Mathewes-Green.

About the Author:
Sacred Doorways reflects Linette Martin's infectious passion for religious icons and the meaning behind them - a field in which as a non-specialist she earned the respect of many experts.

Colour cover, 16 colour icon plates, 259 pages, size 200x135, paperback.
