DISCUSSION2Discussion board forum Assignment 1I agree with the way icons are used by Christians in the Eastern Orthodox traditionaccording to the article. I hold that arguments for the renaissance art and icons ought to beinspired by God and used to play the role of educating people about God[ CITATION Sto14 \l1033 ]. The article identified that an icon is a sacred image, which is more than art and hasimportant spiritual roles. Moreover, the author explains that icons are imagery that expresses theword of God in color. I agree with the way the icons are used in the Eastern Orthodox Traditions based on theway they are introduced or established. The article suggests that artists or individuals withinsociety with no connection with God do not develop icons. The artists are required to go throughprayer and fasting[ CITATION Rou19 \l 1033 ]. This is to promote a closeness to God forinspiration from God. In addition, the icon creator expects no applause or accolades once theicons are completed. That statement means that icon developers should not expect anyrecognition for work done since this would inspire icon developers seeking financial gain andrecognition. This is contrary to the intended use of the icons, which is primarily aiding inworship.
