Abstract

The vanishing Form of the glorious Resurrected Christ, since the period of Renaissance, is the evident proof of a creeping heresy of Ne- storianism into the Western Art. After the God-Man has been reduced to a mere Man Jesus, then every man, also, has been severed from his Divine Prototype. Thus, desacralization leads to dehumanization.

The Orthodox icon-painter (with his ascetic life) is today the only defender of the pristine beauty of man as a reflection of the uncreated Beauty of God.
