Praying With Icons

This course offers students an exploration of Christian iconography, focusing on its origins, development, and significance, particularly within the Eastern Churches. Through a detailed study of historical contexts and theological foundations, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the struggles and growth that shaped Christian iconography.

Participants will learn the process and purpose behind the creation and use of icons, discovering how these sacred images serve as profound spiritual tools. By integrating this knowledge, students will be equipped to incorporate Christian iconography into their personal and communal faith journeys, enhancing their spiritual lives and deepening their appreciation for this rich tradition.

Christians committed to continual growth in their relationship with God, who, however, have little to no experience in the formal study of iconography.

Target Audience Age: 18+

The course will take place on Mondays from 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Students have the option to join this course online via Zoom
