Four Festal Icons
The Theological Meaning of the Icons of the Annunciation, the Nativity of Christ, Theophany, and the Transfiguration
by Presbytera Maria Telepneff
In this study of the compositional elements of the Icons of the Annunciation, the Nativity of Christ, Theophany, and the Transfiguration, Presbytera Maria, herself an accomplished iconographer, applies her practical experience to a lucid exposition of the theological significance of Orthodox iconography. The text is attractively illustrated by classic Icons of these four Feasts.
