Iconography beautifies Santa Fe, NM church
« on: November 17, 2010, 10:49:42 AM »
The Very Rev. John Bethancourt, pastor of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in Santa Fe, New Mexico, called the church's beautiful iconography "a dream come true." The artists who worked on the pieces were likewise very happy with the results.

From the article:
Dmitry Shkolnik, an iconographer for 25 years and head of the group, has painted more than 12 churches, but said he has found Holy Trinity Orthodox Church to be special.

He noted that the architecture (the building was designed by Michael Bertin of Architectural Harmonics in Boulder, Colo.) was particularly fascinating because it blends traditional Santa Fe elements with the architecture of the Byzantine Empire, a fusion that Bethancourt calls "Southwest Byzantine style."

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.


And if I seem a little strange, well, that's because I am

I have passed by this Church several times while in Santa Fe (only about 45 minutes from where I live). I'll have stop in for a visit some time.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
