Real PresenceIan Gibbs, via The Good Book Stall
Sister Wendy tackles a very precious group of images in this, one of a growing number of her books. The real presence referred to is that of Jesus in the icon, although several of the icons here are of saints. The common feature of them all is that they pre-date the destructions of Iconoclasm. (726 – 843) The main collection of these almost miraculous survivals is at St Catherine’s Monastery, Mount Sinai. Some are in Coptic churches or museums with Coptic exhibits. To all of these Sister Wendy gives her expert attention and her spiritually penetrating eye. The art which she sees, and wants the observer to contemplate, is in all senses sacred art.
