    An Icon to Remember During the Late Byzantium Period a new burst of creative energy grasped the Russian artists. More artists emerged as Russians became increasingly interested in art. Earlier in the Byzantium Period “art that had to do with religious worship, like statues and any religious imagery throughout the empire, was destroyed under Leo III in iconoclasm” (Kleiner and Mamiya 326).

    Is Veneration of Icons Idolatry? That "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them" (Exodus 20:4-5 and Deuteronomy 5:9) might, at first glance, be seen as an absolute command or prohibition against worship of any kind of image (A. Fortescue, Veneration of Images, 1910, Volume VII). "For iconoclasts (image-breakers)

    The definition of an icon has changed over time, but in the Byzantine Empire during the period of 726-843 BC the iconoclasts held a distinct idea of what negated an icon. Some referred to it as, “an object of devotion when its quickness is being negated” (Dimmick 26). In this sense, people thought that the objects were alive, when in fact the icon was an inanimate object. Others thought it held otherworldly characteristics, “a version of the duplicity of all human [artifacts], which inevitably overstate

    Signification of Icons in a Computer GUI In 1867 in his paper "On a New List of Categories", Charles Peirce said that there were three kinds of signs: icons, indices, and symbols. According to Thomas Sebeok "a sign is said to be iconic when there is a topological similarity between a signifier and its denotata". Icons are then something that resembles the object that they represent. That similarity between icon and object is fundamentally what sets icons apart from the other two kinds of signs

    Mount Rushmore as National Icon No matter how one looks at it, Mount Rushmore is an impressive sight. With each of the former politicians heads measuring sixty feet in height it would be hard for anyone to see the work as something other than massive in physical scope. However, in addition to the incredible physical dimensions of this megalithic monument to politicians past, Mount Rushmore has a greater, less corporeal, significance. Its image has been used for everything from representing

    that said thing represents. These icons may gain widespread attention due to their influence or prevalence in society. However, our tribute to certain icons is not a new practice. A major dilemma of the eighth century Catholic Church revolved around icons and whether they should be allowed and in what form. From this time stemmed our inclination to revel in the glory of certain icons and the worship of these icons can be, at times, similar to the way cultural icons were honored and worshipped in the

    Icon or Symbol: A Teacher's Moral Dilemma Works Cited Missing It all happened so quickly. One moment I was at my blackboard, the next moment I was between two juvenile males who were trying to prove a "pride point" with their fists. I had, without a conscious thought about it, drawn a crown on the board. Next I heard chairs hitting the floor and screams of profanity. I was called a not-so-nice name by one of my students, followed by his strange comment: "We know who your favorites in this class

    The Christian relationship to icons is very interesting. Over the centuries, there has been a controversy over if sacred images are effective in connecting the believer to the sacred. Other monotheistic religions do not have the same affinity for images as Christianity does. Judaism strictly forbids images in order to follow the Second Commandment, “You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the

    Icons of Ambivalence in Bless Me Ultima The portrait of Mexican Americans is layered in shades of ambivalence. Aside from the fact there is evidence that they can not really be classified as a migratory culture in that the land where they tend to migrate once belonged to Mexico, they can also lay an earlier claim to the land as Native Americans. The Spanish Europeans who settled in the area that became Mexico evolved as the dominant culture over the oral culture of the Native Americans. Nevertheless
