Это - книга, написанная "в стол" в 1984-85 гг. без надежд на скорое издание. Книга - о Театре на Таганке и о времени, не столь уж далёком, с его приметами и привязанностями, верой и безверием. Это - книга любви к тем, кому она посвящена, и книга грусти, причины для которой "очень даже есть", как пел Владимир Высоцкий. Автор книги - журналист, поэт и, по его словам, человек, "отравленный" Таганкой.

You set the price! Words: 78,710. Language: English. Published: January 20, 2016. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Religious art, Nonfiction » Art, Architecture, Photography » Art history

The early Christians expressed their faith in word and image.

Le Christ représenté dans les icônes et dans l'art roman expriment, selon l'auteur, un art œcuménique, c'est-à-dire une vision théologique commune peinte dans un langage artistique commun. Au tour de l'an 1000, tous les chrétiens pouvaient lire et comprendre ces images. Cette unité s'est malheureusement perdue pendant le second millénaire de l'histoire chrétienne. D'autres études suivent.

Cette étude cherche à savoir si les premiers chrétiens étaient hostiles aux images à cause du 2e commandement. Certains affirment qu'ils n'avaient pas d'images et qu'ils considéraient celles-ci comme des idoles. Ce livre s'oppose à ce point de vue et appuie la notion que la tradition chrétienne est ouverte à l'expression de la foi par les arts.
