Sinai Christ

Sinai Christ by Joan Cole

Artwork Narrative:

The Icon of Christ Sinai reflects the Incarnate Christ by imaging in one person a perfect union of both divine nature and human nature, present simultaneously within eternity and within time and space. As such, the Icon of Christ Sinai preserves our traditional understanding of Christology—pointing toward Christ as the true God and true man. In doing so, God gives us an image of Himself to worship.

The Christ Pantocrator of St. Catherine’s Monastery at Sinai is one of the oldest Byzantine religious icons, dating from the sixth century AD. It is the earliest known version of the pantocrator style that still survives today, and is regarded by historians and scholars to be one of the most important and recognizable works in the study of Byzantine art as well as Eastern Orthodox Christianity.
