The exposition on the theme of God the Father in iconography returns to the roots of Orthodox iconography from which practitioners have strayed so completely, especially in recent centuries. Today, there is a tremendous interest in authentic iconography engendered, among other things, by greater freedom to travel in such countries as Russia where 18th and 19th century icons of God the Father abound.

Steven Bigham (both of which Mr. Milliner mentions). As much as I find iconography involving an old man regrettable, there is at least the rationale of the Ancient of Days. He goes on to show how efforts both in the Catholic Church and Orthodoxy have failed to remove this image, despite knowing (especially the Orthodox) its danger.

Orthodox Christian theology is often presented as the direct inheritor of the doctrine and tradition of the early Church. The Rt Revd Dr Hilarion Alfeyev holds doctorates from Oxford and Paris

Orthodox Christian theology is often presented as the direct inheritor of the doctrine and tradition of the early Church. But continuity with the past is only part of the truth; it would be false to conclude that the eastern section of the Christian Church is in any way static. Orthodoxy, building on its patristic foundations, has blossomed in the modern period. The Rt Revd Dr Hilarion Alfeyev holds doctorates from Oxford and Paris. He is cur-rently the Moscow Patriarchate’s Bishop of Austria and Representative to the Euro-pean Institutions.

An important set of readings, including the most detailed "Images of God the Father in Orthodox Iconography, " which discusses traditional prohibitions of depictions of God the Father, discussions of authentic iconography, the spirituality of Orthodox iconography, iconographic canons; Gregory Palamas and Gregory of Nyssa regarding iconography; iconography and the non-Orthodox.

Fr Steven has given us a unique set of essays for edification, discussion and even comment and disagreement. His exposition on "God the Father" returns us to the roots of Orthodox iconography from which practitioners have strayed so completely, especially in recent centuries. Today, there is a tremendous interest in authentic iconography engendered by greater freedom to travel in such countries as Russia where eighteenth and century icons of "God the Father" abound. Travelers see these icons and come back with many questions which Fr Steven's study answers. More important, the broad interest in traditional Christianity throughout the English-speaking world has generated this need to present authentic expression of the faith. This continues the tradition of the publisher and the author who have collaborated on translations of other worthy efforts to describe Orthodox iconography and spirituality.

Fr Steven is a scholar and researcher of Orthodox tradition. He is a graduate of St Vladimir's Seminary and holds a doctorate from the University of Montreal in theology with a specialization in Christian and Orthodox iconography. His work here in these essays and studies hopefully will present an opportunity for further development of the subjects and more publications about beliefs consistent with the basic pillars of Christianity, Holy Scripture, and Holy Tradition.
