“My heart said unto Thee, Thy Face, Lord, will I seek.” Psalm 27.8
‘Prosopon’ is a word encountered many times in the Greek Bible. It expresses the aspect of God which is turned toward the world - his Countenance. The term can therefore be used in the domain of iconology to indicate the perceivable revelation of God. It can delineate all that which lends itself to contemplation within the Divinity of the triune God through his uncreated Grace. God’s Prosopon can be considered to be the divine Archetype, revealed in Jesus Christ, to which all iconography aspires.
“Let the Light of thy Countenance be signed upon us, O Lord!” Psalm 4.’
