Orthodox Arts Journal
A new website has appeared among us that focuses exclusively on the Orthodox liturgical arts and expression. The Orthodox Arts Journal is this new venue.
It describes itself this way:
The Orthodox Arts Journal publishes articles and news for the promotion of traditional Orthodox liturgical arts. The Journal covers visual arts, music, liturgical ceremony and texts, and relevant art history and theory. The Journal presents these topics together to highlight the unified witness of the arts to the beauty of the Kingdom of God and to promulgate an understanding of how the arts work together in the worship of the Church. In the spirit of the revival of traditional Orthodox liturgical arts sparked by Kontoglou and Ouspensky, the Journal will publicize excellence in contemporary liturgical arts, emphasizing fidelity to the Church’s tradition of beauty and craft.
You can subscribe to this site by e-mail and receive notice when new things are added to the site.
This website will be a great source of learning about the iconography, music and arts that are a part of the Faith. Make sure to visit it!
