Maguire, Henry:
The Icons of their Bodies : Saints and their Images in Byzantium - hardcover

2001, ISBN: 9780691025810

ID: 204260788

Univ California State Pr at, January 2001. Hardcover Hardcover. New. The defense of the Church's affirmative answer to the key question of the Byzantine iconoclastic controversy - 'Can God be represented?' - rested primarily upon the incarnation of Christ: 'I am emboldened to depict the invisible God, not as invisible, but as he became visible for our sake, by participation in flesh and blood' (St. John Damascene). Although the precise nature of angels is difficult to define, ranging from the biblical characterization of them as fire and wind (Ps. 104:4) to the assertion by Macarius the Great that they have subtle bodies, it is certain that they are incorporeal in so far as they do not participate in flesh and blood, which raises the central question of this inquiry: 'How does one make an image of an incorporeal being, and what meaning does that image have for devotion to and comprehension of that being?' Drawing from a deep well of resources, including icons, saints' lives, and patristic texts, art historian Glenn Peers addresses these questions by describing the theological contours of the Byzantine debate over icons with particular emphasis upon angelic images and by exploring the impact of such imagery upon the public devotion of Late Antiquity. A topic too often neglected, Peer's examination of angels within the context of the iconoclastic controversy is a unique and intriguing contribution to the growing field of Byzantine studies., Univ California State Pr at, Minor wear.

THE ICONS OF THEIR BODIES: Saints and their Images in Byzantium

Special attention is paid to the poems inscribed by the Byzantines upon their icons, and to the written lives of their saints, texts that offer the most direct and vivid insight into the everyday experience of art in Byzantium. The overall purpose of the book is to provide a new view of Byzantine art, one that integrates formal analysis with both theology and social history.
