Publisher's Summary

The Western Catholic Church is fast losing her centuries-old sense of the uncreated beauty of God, as manifested through the created beauty of sacred art, by buying into postmodern minimalism for the adornment of new churches. This loss is occurring despite the Church's longstanding tradition as Patroness of the Arts and the 1999 call of Saint John Paul II for the urgent need to return to "epiphanies of beauty" in Catholic churches worldwide.

In the meantime, icons and iconographic frescos that populate Orthodox churches remain much sought after by believers and non-believers alike for their timeless beauty and inescapable sense of the transcendent. Will the People of God be able to resist the new iconoclasm characterized by facelessness in the Western Catholic Church through the triumphant and hidden power of icons?

Icons as Resistance: Challenging the New Iconoclasm in the Catholic Church documents a series of engaging conversations about the role that icons have in the Church at large and the role they can play at present in the Roman Catholic Church itself. These conversations were held between the author and a group of traditional Catholics earlier this year.
