The pictures depicting confession just rip me to shreds.  I guess because I have not experienced it yet, and I have very mixed feelings (fear of exposing my shame yet relief for forgiveness).  I put myself in those pictures as the penitent and the tears roll down.

Technically isn't any Christian art prior to AD 1054 Orthodox art?

Not if it's Donatist, Paulician, Arian, etc.

Though whether the Paulicians can even be considered Christian or not is anyone's guess, given that almost nothing is known of what they actually believed. (That didn't stop the authors of books like The Trail of Blood and The Pilgrim Church from claiming that they, along with the Donatists, were a branch of the "true" church).

Something a little different:



Quote
This is a 20th c. icon found in a Syriac biblical manuscript. I first saw it in the vlllage of Basibrine in the fall of 1990. Malphono Isa took me to this small village church. In the courtyard was a mulberry tree. Inside the sanctuary was a lectionary text on a stand. Malphono Isa opened the book to this page. It demonstrates the living tradition of copying MSS.

Unfortunately, the village was attacked and destroyed in the chaos of the first Gulf War. I remember the day the village elders brought this manuscript to Mor Gabriel Monastery where it now resides. A microfilm of the MS was made by St. John's University.

See Telegraph lines from Constantinople to Baghdad (mgmt 52, f.292r)
a reposting of the image was made by Adam C. McCollum, Ph.D.Some Recent Syriac and Arabic Finds in hmml’s Collections
