A Brief History

Iconography as a religious, historical art can be dated as far back as the 3rd century. After millennia of tradition, interpretation, and reformation, religious iconography as the world now knows it is just as deeply spiritual as ever. The recognizable nature of the artwork is designed to honor the Word of God through the Saints and the Holy People depicted.
