Icons Part 4
Celebrating the Feasts

- Fr. Micah Hirschy -


Celebrating the Feasts with Color

In part four of this series "Beauty Will Save the World" Father Micah shares with us icons of the Feasts of Christ. He shows how icons interact with one another especially in churches in Greece and the Middle East, where the iconography is more of a symphony rather than an individual instrument. Some of the Feasts depicted include the following; The Annunciation, The Nativity, The Transfiguration, The  Raising of Lazarus, The Mystical Supper and The Resurrection. Once again he explains how even over the centuries icons echo one another. He concludes with unique iconography from the twelfth century depicted in what is known as the "Cave Church" in Cappadocia which was completely carved out of limestone.
