Iconostasis

Pavel Florensky

translated by Donald Sheehan and Olga Andrejev

Iconostasis is Fr Pavel's final theological work. Composed in 1922, it explores in highly original terms the significance of the icon: its philosophic depth, its spiritual history, its empirical technique. In doing so, Fr Pavel also sketched a new history of both Western religious art and the Orthodox icon: a history under the direct operation of the Holy Spirit. The work is original, challenging and profoundly articulate. This translation is the first complete English version.

Saint Nicholas & the Nine Gold Coins

Jim Forest illustrated by Vladislav Andrejev

The popular perception of Saint Nicholas today diverges greatly from his original veneration as a compassionate almsgiver and defender of the poor…This book reacquaints boys and girls with the authentic Santa Claus - Nicholas, a man who found greatness not simply in spreading "good cheer," but in being a true icon of Jesus Christ in word and deed.
