Magnificent Icons in Bulgaria (на английски език)


In recent years there has been a conspicuous rise in the public and scholarly interest in the history of the icon, resulting in exhibitions and new books. I am sure that the importance of this publication will be to open up a whole new range of readers to the importance of what can be seen in Bulgaria. What is excellent about the captions is that Georgi Parpulov, who is an internationally recognized authority on Byzantine and Bulgarian art, give a great deal of evidence in a short and succinct manner. Information is given about the state of painting and where there have been later restorations and repairs, and in some case re-painting. Also valuable is that the original inscriptions on the icons have been transcribed, and their contents well laid out. All are dated, and these attributions are well considered and accurate, despite the well-known difficulties of dating Orthodox church icons.
