Icon painting has reached its zenith in Ukraine between the 11th and 18th centuries. This art is appealing because of its great openness to other influences – the obedience to the rules of Orthodox Christianity in its early stages, the borrowing from Roman heritage or later to the Western breakthroughs – combined with a never compromised assertion of a distinctly Slavic soul and identity. This book presents a handpicked and representative selection of works from the 11th century to the late Baroque period.

Focusing on the classic methods of icon painting and its rich history, this detailed and practical guide covers everything, from the materials needed and how to prepare a panel to adding inscriptions and finishing off using traditional Byzantine techniques. It explains the origins and principles of icon painting; how to choose a subject; the technique of sacred geometry; the use of color, varnishing, and egg tempera; and how to use traditional gilding techniques. Part of the icon's symbolism is transmitted in the techniques used to create it and this is explored throughout. With in-depth information, step-by-step demonstrations, invaluable advice, and many superb examples of finished icons, this is the most comprehensive guide to the philosophy and practice of icon painting.

This volume examines characters in the Fourth Gospel and provides an in-depth look at different approaches currently employed by scholars working with literary and reader-oriented methods. Divided into two sections, the book first considers method and theory, followed by exegetical character studies using a literary or reader-oriented method. It summarizes the state of the discussion, examines obstacles to arriving at a comprehensive theory of character in the Fourth Gospel, compares different approaches, and compiles the diverse methodologies into one comparative study. Through this detailed exegesis, the various theories will come alive, and the merits (or deficiencies) of each approach will be available to the reader. This volume is both a comprehensive study in narrative/reader-oriented theories, and a study in the application of those theories as they apply to characterization. Summing up current research on characters and characterization in the Fourth Gospel, this book also provides a comprehensive presentation of different approaches to character that have developed in recent years.
