The Byzantine icon, together with other works of the classical antiquity, is a cultural monument of great historical and aesthetic value. Furthermore, the Byzantine icon is an object of worship of priceless value, being inseparably associated with the faith of the people forming the Orthodox Church.
Therefore, the “Ormylia” Art Diagnosis Centre is using a highly specialized method, involving a set of physicochemical analysis procedures – all complementary to each other – which contribute to the examination and documentation of the examined icons.
The conclusion of this diagnosis for 15 post-Byzantine icons is included in this volume, both in Greek and English in order to be part of the international bibliography.
