Byzantine Icons from Sinai


A stunning exhibition, organized by the Getty in 2006, looks at the world's largest collection of Byzantine icons, from the Holy Monastery of Saint Catherine, located in the desert, near Mount Sinai, in Egypt. With many media-rich tools to aid understanding, such as audio overviews and a video excursion of the monastery grounds, the exhibit underscores the artistic, historic, and spiritual power of icons and touches on many related topics: iconoclasm, monastic life, and the Eastern Orthodox church.
