Christian feasts, such as Christmas and Pascha, form the weft of the Christian year. Festal Icons: History and Meaning explores how the fourteen major feasts of the Orthodox Church developed over time, and how the images associated with them evolved. Every chapter concludes with a detailed examination of the most common icon associated with each feast.

This study, the most detailed in the English language, draws together recent scholarship and the warmth of faith. It is an invaluable reference book for all those interested in delving deeper into the world of icons.
