From the ontological uncertainty concerning the possibility of symbolizing transcendency, of rendering the spirit physically evident, to a theological issue for the differences in sensitivity between the two Churches of the West and the East and the distinct ways they relate themselves to sacred art – or icons – as representation or significance of sacredness. Two different ways of interpreting this phenomenon are clearly investigated and illustrated with a wide selection of iconographies.
