Holy Icons: The ancient Christian tradition of images

In this video, I discuss the ancient Christian tradition of displaying and venerating the Holy Icons, images of Christ, the Theotokos (Virgin Mary), and the Saints and Angels. I briefly go over the history of Iconography, discuss Iconography in the context of the Second Commandment, and explain a little about how the Holy Icons are viewed and used in the Orthodox Church today.

For more information about Icons, see the article "Holy Icons: Theology in Color" by Daniel Bell featured on the website of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of North America: http://www.antiochian.org/1103744287
