Anna Palusińska – Icon, the Picture of the Presence: Two Medieval Theories of Representation

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

Two theories of representation were formulated during the iconoclastic controversy in Byzantine Empire. John of Damascus is the author of Apologetic Treatises against those Decrying the Holy Images. He develops a defence of icons and a theory of holy images. The Christian Neoplatonism is the philosophical basis for his conception of hierarchic being and hierarchic image. The other theory of icon is the scholastic theory proposed by two authors: Theodore of Studion and Nikephoros. They use Aristotelian metaphysics, defining the image as relation pros ti. The two theories of representation are the source of the 20th century theology and philosophy of icon.

Keywords: the philosophy of icon, John of Damascus, Theodore of Studion, Nikephoros, iconoclasm
