Summary:
This volume is a comparative study of the major iconophile writings of John of Damascus, Theodore the Studite and the Patriarch Nikesphoros. Contrary to expectations, this study shows that far from being reactionary in their thought, the iconophiles were in fact more radical in their theology than the iconoclasts.
