Byzantine Icons

The word ‘icon’ is derived from the Greek ‘eikon’, meaning an image. Byzantine icons are popularly known as the art of Eastern Orthodox Christianity (that is, the branch of Christianity pertinent to Byzantium, Syria, Lebanon, Cyprus, Jordan, Greece, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Russia). But they are also much more; they illustrate religious or patriotic stories from the Bible, the Chronicle, the lives of saints and other Christian sources. Byzantine Icons were, and still are, created for prayer and liturgical use in the church and for personal prayers at home or in travel and bridged the gap between man and God. Byzantine icons were so beautifully and skillfully made, that are nowadays part of numerous private collections in addition to being in churches and museums all over the world today.
