It begins here. This book is over 550 pages long! I put all of myself into this. I know this is the goal of the poet, and probably every poet in the world would say this.

Cinq textes iconophobes sont attribués à Épiphane évêque de Chypre, IVe s. Sont-ils authentiques ou des faux ? La légitimité de la tradition artistique chrétienne en dépend, en partie.
