The sacred art of Greece: the iconographic tradition
The tradition of sacred art in Greece can be traced back to antiquity, where statues were believed to house the spirits of deities, and the smallest of images in the form of talismans and amulets allowed the bearer to carry their gods with them on their travels. The metaphysical philosophy underpinning the idea of living images was explored by some of the greatest neoplatonist philosophers and following the adoption of Christianity in Greece, evolved into the iconographic tradition.
