Author: Evseyeva, L.
A major new work and one of the first published in English by Russian scholars in the post Communist era. Innovative by virtue of its completeness and encyclopedic coverage, this fundamental work covers the history of icon painting from the beginning of Christianity until the present. The individual contributors are all specialists and scholars working in museums and institutions of higher learning in contemporary Russia, and their writings are both spiritual and scholarly. The superb level of material presentation renders the book indispensable for studying many subjects, making it universally attractive for students and for a broader readership.
