FROM GLORY TO GLORY: ICONS AS ENCOUNTER WITH THE FACE OF BEAUTY

ICONS IN THE MODERN WORLD: A new way of seeing
A talk given by Zoom for the Russian Museum of Icons, Clinton, Massachusetts, 5 March, 2022. Individuals and cultures live on this earth according to how they see the world; actions naturally follow upon vision. Follow the footprints of destructive actions and they will lead you to the human heart and its distorted vision of what it thinks the world should be like. Follow the actions of a saint on the other hand, and they will lead you to a heart full of the sort of things we see in icons.
