Iconoclasm is a major topic in the history of the Byzantine Empire. It was said that the true worship of Christ was the worship to be found in the spirit and in the truth and not in images. In order to have this critical doctrine accepted, Constantine V held a council in Hiereia in 754. Along with an introduction to the history of the iconoclastic controversy, this book presents an annotated translation of the definition of the iconoclastic council held in Hiereia in 754.
Iconoclasm is a major topic in the history of the Byzantine Empire. In the 8th century there was a growing opposition to the significance attributed to the images of Christ, Mary and the saints as the bearers of miraculous characteristics. It was said that the true worship of Christ was the worship to be found in the spirit and in the truth and not in images. In order to have this critical doctrine accepted throughout the entire empire, Constantine V held a council in Hiereia in 754. Along with an introduction to the history of the iconoclastic controversy, the book presents an annotated translation of the definition of this council. This horos is the only substantial iconoclastic document we possess. It was refuted in the Sixth Session of the Council of Nicea in 787.
