New, earliest iconography?

One thought on “New, earliest iconography?

  1. Strongly recommend the book Early Christian Attitudes Toward Images:

    The archaeological evidence shows that iconography was likely in use by both Jewish and Christian communities in the Apostolic age. This is yet another piece of accumulating evidence that has made the modern iconoclast position that early Christians were hostile to images completely implausible. Having said that, the Christology of the icons – like, for example, the doctrine of the Trinity – is obviously a later development.
