New books on Iconography

By the initiative of the Publish house “Neputns” two books have come out on Iconography, its history and meaning: “History of the Icon painting: 6th – 20th centuries)” and “Icon: from the Ancciet Rus to Latvia”. These are really unique publications, the first in Latvian language in academic setting. The world of icons is like vast universe attracting special; attention by those who know the art and researchers as being spiritually profound and rich in history. Staff of the Academy also took part in preparation of the publication: Juris Jefuni, Evija Rudzīte and Guntis Dišlers.
