Icons can be a great school, but their importance is not only in teaching the doctrine, especially when they don’t depict an incident, but a person, and most of all the Christ.

These Icons, commonly called ‘pantokratorikes’ (images of the Christ Pantokrator), showing Him from the middle of His body to the face, let our attention focus on His face, secondarily to the Triadological and Christological movement of His blessing and to the Book that He keeps in the other hand — never to an episode of His life.
