DISCUSSION 2 Discussion board forum Assignment 1 I agree with the way icons are used by Christians in the Eastern Orthodox tradition according to the article. I hold that arguments for the renaissance art and icons ought to be inspired by God and used to play the role of educating people about God[ CITATION Sto14 \l 1033 ]. The article identified that an icon is a sacred image, which is more than art and has important spiritual roles. Moreover, the author explains that icons are imagery that expresses the word of God in color. I agree with the way the icons are used in the Eastern Orthodox Traditions based on the way they are introduced or established. The article suggests that artists or individuals within society with no connection with God do not develop icons. The artists are required to go through prayer and fasting[ CITATION Rou19 \l 1033 ]. This is to promote a closeness to God for inspiration from God. In addition, the icon creator expects no applause or accolades once the icons are completed. That statement means that icon developers should not expect any recognition for work done since this would inspire icon developers seeking financial gain and recognition. This is contrary to the intended use of the icons, which is primarily aiding in worship.
