The Rublev Trinity

$30.00

 Product Description

Author: Gabriel Bunge

Fomat: Hardback

Pages: 120

Many art historians and schoalrs have described the sublime icon of the Holy Trinity by St Andrei Rublev, but nothing equals this detailed and comprehensive theological explanation by Benedictine monk (now Orthodox schema-archimandrite) Gabriel Bunge. In this inspired and utterly sober work, Fr Gabriel aims to make the icon's timeless message accessible to the contemporary praying believer.

The author understands precisely that Russian iconographic art, much more than the Romanesque and Gothic sacred art of the West, represents a theological confession of faith. Icon painters were conscious of this responsibility, and the monk-painters who learned their Orthodox faith through the prayer of the Hours and the Divine Liturgy, through the familiar texts of the hymns and the Gospel readings, reflected the revelation of God in their art. Fr Gabriel, completely attuned to this method of inspiration, reverently expounds upon the awesome utterance by Fr Pavel Florensky: "There exists the icon of the Trinity by St Andrei Rublev; therefore, God exists."
