Here is the icon corner in my room.



Holy crap icons! LOL not meant to be disrespectful. Beautiful.

What is the main black book?

The main black book is an Old Rite Horologion.

Edit: Sorry, just realized this is quite a late reply to your question.

Very nice! Is that an olive branch? And what are the Encyclopedic looking volumes?

Selam

It is a palm leaf left over from Palm Sunday.  The Encyclopedic volumes are set one and two of the Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers.  The set of the Ante-Nicene Fathers is below and not in the photograph.  I believe that these works are on-line now.  They were not at the time that I purchased these.

As an interesting note, the two black books weighing down that top shelf are German Bibles, one from the late 1800's and one from 1901.  The 1901 version does not have any pages missing (unlike the 1800's one), and the front piece says (in German)

"The Bible, or the complete Holy Scriptures translated by Dr. Marin Luther, St. Louis Mo, Concordia Publishing House, 1901." 

This Bible contains all of the Apocryphal books except the Maccabees III and IV.  Concordia Publishing House is the publisher for the LCMS Lutheran Church.

my humble corner



hopefully this summer, i will add to it

side note, must it be in the Eastern corner?

It would serve better to be in a different corner, because of the way my doors swing if i wished to place a shelf, but it is okay where it is

It is preferable to be on an eastern corner, however, if your door will hit the Icons it's okay to place them in a more decent place. Smiley

You are of course correct! But my icon corner is "bad" even in the way you define it, *sigh* lately I have been prayerless, but I'll pull myself back up. Thank you for your encouraging words. Smiley

My Dad got it for me a while back from Egypt. It's more Greek Orthodox in style than Coptic, you are correct. The name of the iconographer is Midhat Malek.

I leave it to you and your twisted imagination to decide! Wink

No, really... cheap candles. Dollar Store. Never again!
I scraped the wax off but have yet to deep clean the wall. I think the splatter gives my corner a weathered, authentic, prayerful kind of look anyway. Smiley

my icon corner, which is currently residing in my closet here at college. sadly I cannot have candles or use the censer, and technically I'm not allowed to use tacks, but I usually fill them in at the end of the year so they don't notice...

the closet already had the dresser setup in the little niche so I figured it'd be a good place. I'd use my eastern wall, but I would have to place my prayer books and stuff elsewhere.

I got most of my icons while in Greece. they were a lot cheaper over than than here in the US (well, they were absolutely everywhere in Greece, even in the supermarkets).

thank you!

I actually have a Roman Catholic Crucifix that was originally in my icon corner back in 2005/2006, but I donated it to my parent's protestant church. Nothing was done with it, and unfortunately it was stored in a room that got flooded, so the little pins holding Christ on the cross broke. It should be repaired soon and hopefully will make its way back onto my icon corner, as I took it back when I saw it wasn't being used.
