lecture the ancient of days depicting god the father in orthodox iconography photoSince God the Father is neither incarnate nor comprehensible to the limited human mind, how can he be iconically depicted by humans?

Orthodox Christian iconographers, informed by Eastern Orthodox theology and philosophy, used various means to depict God the Father, highlighting an inherent tension between popular religion and Church theology.

Christopher is currently a MALS student in cultural studies at Dartmouth College whose thesis research is focused on the Greek Orthodox Monastery of Sts.

Raphael, Nicholas, and Irene on the island of Lesvos.
