Luke Warmodox thinks the modernist icons painted by Fr Stamatis Skliris are cool. Especially the one of the Resurrection painted in the chapel at Chambesy.  :P

Sad paradox: The Hyperdox Herman meme works best when people with actual hyperdox tendencies contribute them. Attempted memes like this fall flat because they are being contributed by people with the exact opposite tendencies and so come across as harsh. The only way to get a "let's make fun of liberal Orthodox" meme to work is to get "progressive" Orthodox to make fun of themselves. "Progressives" with enough of a sense of humor to make fun of themselves are rare.

The only solution is to get Jon Stewart to convert to Orthodox Christianity.

You do have a point.  While I found most of these funny, I can see where you are coming from.  Most of the Hyperdox Herman memes I have seen were done by Luke Warmodox and as a result were about as funny as getting herpes from a toilet seat.

You have to have some degree of affection for something to make fun of it properly.

Yes, I stopped viewing the Hyperdox Herman thread because it was no longer funny after the first few pages.

Actually it is very interesting art, both paintings. They're just not icons. I don't know why people make such a fuss to say that any icon-inspired art is an icon as well.

As per the meme above, there is a lot of very good poetry that is not in sonnet metrics. Why anyone would insist in calling a non-sonnet a sonnet, is beyond me.


Fabio Leite,

Repent, before the Holy Fathers of Chambesy testify against you on the Last Day.

Luke Warmodox thinks the modernist icons painted by Fr Stamatis Skliris are cool. Especially the one of the Resurrection painted in the chapel at Chambesy.  :P

This intrigues me.

Oh my.

Hmmmm. I don't think I've ever looked at an icon and thought "Man, I wish I still dropped acid" before.

Try this one. The inscription reads "St Andrew just before his martyrdom". Now THAT'S a trip!  :o

The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Unfortunately, Fabio, both images are called icons by the artist who painted them. Even worse, the artist is an Orthodox priest, who holds himself out to be an "authority on iconography".  >:( >:( >:(

That why I think they mix icon theology and philosophy of art. There are more than enough virtues that recommend art, even icon-inspired art. But not all images are icons just like not all spiritual texts are Scripture. I think both "Passion of Christ" and "Jesus Christ Superstar" are engaging art in their own methods and aims, and I appreciate both. I don't see any lacking in them that their scripts should be called Scripture.

I think some artists should be more confident of what they do and relax. There is God inspiration even in non-icon paitings. Just chill. :)

An iconographer is not a free agent, giving full rein to his creative impulses to produce a work of self-expression. He is an instrument working in obedience to the Church, painting according to what the Church teaches. His responsibility is as great as that of the hymnographer, whose hymns must properly reflect and proclaim Orthodox teachings. There is so much that is wrong with the "icons" of the Resurrection and of St Andrew, yet the artist has seen it fit to call them icons. Disgraceful and unacceptable.

Decent derivative name.

Terrible execution.

No one will top Herman.

I disagree. This tops Herman.

Keep the beard jokes coming.

There is this one:


Beard: penance during Lent

Wife hates being scratched.


Be at St. Vlad's seminary when you are 6 years old during forgiveness Sunday.

This is the definition of both forgiveness and Penance at the same time LOL!   My face felt raw for 2 weeks after.

Just for understanding: Why exactly do you think these pictures cannot be considered icons?
