Holy Images and Other Images
This paper puts forward two simple claims. The first is that ontology of holy images is exemplary for all images. The second is that the Byzantine theology of images is exemplary for all subsequent image theory.
In making these claims, I take issue with some of the methodological and ideological presuppositions of what is certainly the greatest modern study of holy images, Hans Belting's Bild und Kult: Eine Geschichte des Bildes vor dem Zeitalter der Kunst.
