Iconography Series at the Telos Center

We have three fantastic iconographers giving talks at the Telos Center! Check out who they are, their talks, and when they are speaking! October 1: @ 2 PM Kirollos Kilada Putting Images Back in Context: The Icon in the Liturgy Icons are great for your room to be used in devotional prayer, but in this talk Kirollos Kilada makes a strong case that they are also a liturgical text. What they say aids our understanding of the Divine Liturgy (and ultimately God) and consequently, the Liturgy provides the context in which we are to interpret the icons as well!

November 4 @ 12 PM EST: Aidan Hart  The Icon in Prayer: How to Pray with Icons The second in our three part iconography speaker series, all are welcome to Aidan Hart’s talk ‘How to Pray with Icons’. An internationally acclaimed iconographer and scholar, Aidan Hart is known for taking even the most complicated topics and making them perfectly understandable. Kirollos Kilada in his first series talk about icons in the Liturgy, and now Aidan Hart will talk about their use in our personal lives and in the prayer room. Is praying with icons as simple as setting one in front of you while praying? Perhaps… or perhaps not. Come to the talk and find out! This talk is held entirely on Zoom! Click here to register!
