Monastery Icons.Com: Caveat Emptor
Vivificat! - A Catholic Blog of Commentary and Opinion | 28 July 2005 | Teˇfilo

Folks, with heaviness of heart, I cannot recommend any more MonasteryIcons.com as a source for religious iconography. It appears that their theological bona fides are not in order, to put it mildly.

I have used their religious pictures many times during the last year and a half to illustrate the significant saints of the day. I always included a link to their site as credit. Not any more.

I apologize for having led thirsty souls to the wrong well unknowingly .

The information that moved me to discontinue my recommendation may be accessed in the links below:

- A word about Monastery Icons by Father Anthony Nelson.

- Magnetic Therapy: Healing in Your Hands

- An Eagle's Flight: Autobiography of a Gnostic Orthodox Christian

- There is a conversation with the Abbot (audio) available here Dr. Netherton and Abbot George Burke


TOPICS: Catholic; General Discusssion; Orthodox Christian; Theology
KEYWORDS: gnostic; icon; iconography
Typos, grammar blunders, etc...you know the drill. They are all my fault.
