 Our Description


This extraordinary collection of full-page, full-color icons introduces reader, art appreciators, and historians to the spiritual riches of the Byznatine liturgical tradition.  Father Michael Evdokimov, a Russian Orthodox priest living in Paris, has presented an icon for each of the twelve great feasts of the Orthodox Christian liturgical year, as well as for other special moments of prayer.


Preceding each icon is a brief commentary explaining its meaning and significance.  Furthermore, facing each icon are prayers appropriate for mediatation that have been translated by the Monks of New Skete Monastery in upstate New York.

In a simple and accessible manner, translator Robert Smith has brought text, prayers, and icons together to show how the beliefs and practices common to Orthodox people everywhere in the world can be appreciated by all.
