Four well-known professors-Archimandrite John Pantelimon Manoussakis, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the College of the Holy Cross in Boston, MA, Cornelia Tsakirdou, Professor of Philosophy at Lasalle University in Philadelphia, PA, George Kordis, professor Emeritus of Iconography at University of Athens, and bishop Maxim Vasiljevic, professor of Patiristics at the University of Belgrade-give us various insights into Christian Orthodox Icons, their beauty, meaning, and their future in the 21st century. Their reflections on this topic from the perspective of Orthodox Christian images or icons were originally presented at the Symposium on the Aesthetics of the Christian Image, held at Stanford University on March 5,2016. For these authors working within Tradition is not merely the repetition of old models, but rather the application of immutable principles in solving contemporary pictorial problems. They also present a theological aesthetic in which God is to be reached through the senses, including the relationship between person and icon.
