Byzantine Icons >
Our Byzantine Icons are painted or "written" with the egg-tempera
technique; it is an old traditional way to "study the Bible with colors."

Because of the strict rules that the iconographer should follow trying
to express the mystery of God and man, the Byzantine Icons have an
universal quality.
"God became Man so
that men might become
gods" is the main
sentence that the
Fathers of the Church
had used to meditate,
speak, and live the Plan
of Salvation.
Following the teaching of the
Fathers of the Church, the
Icon reveals the "deification"
of the mankind and of the
world; it reminds people, with
its "mystical language", that
they are created in the image
and likeness of God, showing
them their original dignity and
destiny.
