Icons in the Orthodox ChurchOne
of the unique characteristics of the Orthodox Church is its use of
icons (i.e., holy images). Icons have been in use since the earliest
days of the Christian Church. Icons, in their simplest forms, were
found in the catacombs, grave sites and other places of ancient
Christian worship. They included: the cross, the fish, the lamb and
other symbols that represented Jesus Christ. By the fifth century,
iconography began to be widespread. Beautiful paintings, mosaics,
frescoes and other media of art were used to depict Christ, the Virgin
Mary and the saints. The Church felt quite comfortable in depicting our
Lord and His saints, for they felt the media of art was just another
way to praise and teach about God-just as the Church used music and
poetry. Icons were depicted on churches, homes and public buildings....
