Theodore’s theology of icon, even as it represents a culmination in the field, has not received the attention it deserves. This book systematically combines historical and theological scholarship in a way that illuminates the coherence in the original texts otherwise difficult to understand by contemporary readers. With an existential engagement the study presents the theology of icon and discusses spiritual dimensions and implications in practical life.
