Religious icon painting, the Christian art of Asia, Eastern Europe and Russia, dates from probably the mid-3rd century. John Taylor describes how icons were made, examines their religious message and the forms in which it was cast, and explains the stories and symbolism behind all the great icons. But he also shows how icons had a secular importance for the Holy Roman Emperors by aiding their claims for temporal power in the East and West. The authoritative text takes into account new research in art history. Eighty full-color illustrations are complemented by tinted information panels providing specific reference to each major painting, its background and critical interpretations. Among the icons in this book are paintings from Asia Minor, Constantinople, Crete, Central Greece and the Greek Islands, Moscow, Novgorod, and Salonica.
