In this issue of PRAXIS, we hope to enlarge your under- standing of icons in the Orthodox Church, to help you “see them better.” ere is still so much more that can be said about them, from art history to theological treatises. But we shouldn’t limit ourselves to knowledge about icons, because to really understand them, it becomes necessary to move into other areas of exploration as well, from Byzantine history to liturgical studies.
