A Brief History of Icons
Christianity spread by the spoken and written word and by pictures. Jesus’ followers went out into the Roman Empire to tell stories of his life. For two hundred years, scribes recorded their tales. Literate Apostles like Paul wrote letters that belong among the world’s great literature. Unknown artists painted portraits, stories, symbols, and signs. This course traces the evolution of Christian art focusing on Eastern Christian churches. We will include a field trip to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church to view newly installed icons. Mike Kapetan has created art for churches of all denominations, synagogues, and Buddhist temples.
