The Trinity is an icon created by Russian painter Andrei Rublev in the 15th century

The Trinity is an icon created by Russian painter Andrei Rublev in the 15th century. It is his most famous work and the most famous of all Russian icons, and it is regarded as one of the highest achievements of Russian art. Scholars believe that it is one of only two works of art (the other being the Dormition Cathedral frescoes in Vladimir) that can be attributed to Rublev with any sort of certainty.

Rublev'S "holy trinity" has attracted thousands of. .

Rublev'S "holy trinity" has attracted thousands of people of every creed, profession and age with a common desire to worship this ideal of beauty and true spirituality, executed with perfect artistic means. The 18th book of Genesis narrates the story of how the Lord appeared to Abraham in the plains of Mamre when he was sitting at his tent door.

Andrei Rublev; Born in the 1360s, he died between 1427 and 1430 in Moscow and is considered to be one of the greatest medieval Russian painters of Orthodox icons and frescos. Little information survives about his life; even where he was born is unknown. He probably lived in the Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra, near Moscow, under Nikon of Radonezh, who became hegumen after the death of Sergii Radonezhsky in 1392

Holy Trinity Icon by Andrei Rublev Interpretation, Iconography of Russian Orthodox Panel Painting MAIN A-Z INDEX. Holy Trinity Icon By Andrei Rublev. Considered to be one of the Greatest Paintings Ever. Holy Trinity Icon (1411-25). The pictorial and technical qualities of the Holy Trinity Icon are certainly admirable and could scarcely be bettered as a model. So, for this reason at least, such an accolade is hardly surprising. Yet what won over the monks was something deeper and, moreover, more specifically Orthodox: the piece shows an ideal expression of God without God being represented.

Among the most instantly recognizable images of Eastern Christianity is the icon of the Holy Trinity by the hand of St. Andrei Rublev. Its transcendent and enduring quality appeals across the centuries to peasant and scholar alike.

Andrei Rublev, a famous medieval painter of orthodox icons and frescos . But as evidenced by the geometry of the Trinity, for Rublev, all three hypostases were equal and placed in a circle.

Andrei Rublev, a famous medieval painter of orthodox icons and frescos, is considered the pride and glory of Russian culture. Andrey Rublev and Danil Cherny were invited by Father Nikon to decorate the monastery. The icon Trinity became Rublev’s greatest masterpiece, created for the Cathedral of St. Trinity. And if the name of Rublev personifies the art of old Russia, the icon Trinity symbolizes the peak of that culture. The lines of the wings and clothes fade into each other creating a feeling of balance and calmness.

Rublev’s famous Trinity icon, which is regarded as the highest artistic expression of the Trinitarian Dogma, was also created for the Trinity Cathedral. According to the chronicles, Nikon Radonezhsky commissioned the icon in memory and glory of Reverend Sergei

Rublev’s famous Trinity icon, which is regarded as the highest artistic expression of the Trinitarian Dogma, was also created for the Trinity Cathedral.

Unfortunately, the frescoes and icons of the monastery’s Spassky Cathedral created by Rublev have not survived

This book goes into great detail about the history of the Holy Trinity icon, its development through the centuries and the environment of Rublev when he painted it.

Many art historians and scholars have described the sublime icon of the Holy Trinity by St Andrei Rublev, but nothing equals this detailed and comprehensive theological explanation by Benedectine monk Gabriel Bunge. In this inspired and utterly sober work, Fr Gabriel aims to make the icon's timeless message accessible to the contemporary praying believer. The author understands precisely that Russian iconographic art, much more than the Romanesque and Gothic sacred art of the West, represents a theological confession of faith. Icon painters were conscious of this responsibility, and the monk-painters who learned their Orthodox faith through the prayer of the Hours and the Divine Liturgy, through the familiar texts of the hymns and the Gospel readings, reflected the revelation of God in their art. Fr Gabriel, completely attuned to this method of inspiration, upholds the palladium - the sign and meaning of Holy Russia - in this work, and reverently expounds upon the awesome utterance by Pavel Florensky: 'There exists the icon of the Trinity by St Andrei Rublev; therefore, God exists.' Includes 23 color plates.

Although most everyone comments on the Rublev Trinity, this book is a great addition to the field.

The beginner will learn much, the more advanced will not be disappointed either. A must have for the serious student of Icons and Iconography.

The book has a wealth of information on iconography and its history. The language is a bit academic, but is well worth taking it slowly because of its thorough approach. Other books that are easier to read do not impart the depth of knowledge that this book does. While academic, it is still accessible reading.

An excellent book for anyone wanting to understand the theological and spiritual traditions that sit behind Rublev's Trinity icon.

This book is a highly detailed and critically researched work, providing an unusually well-informed understanding and explanation of this magnificent icon. It is obvious that the author, a Swiss Benedictine monk, was afforded significant assistance in access, viewing and studying the icon, by the staff of the Tretyakov Museum, Moscow, where this icon is now housed. Many questions of Rublev's technique and symbolism are explained along with relevant Biblical references. Also, many misconceptions and myths extant are disposed of by this work. I couldn't have found a more erudite and helpful study to help our students at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral's Iconography Institute in their re-creation of this icon. Highly recommended, although probably a bit too "deep" for the casual reader.

Excellent book!
An important event in the renewal of iconography occurred in Russia in 1904. This was the year that a commission was created to restore Rublev's "Holy Trinity" icon, then nearly four hundred years old. As was the case with many old icons, over time the smoke of candles had been absorbed by the varnish, gradually hiding the brilliant image beneath the varnish.

In the centuries when no safe method existed for removing the varnish without harming the image, the cure for blackened images was the repainting of icons. Thus a similar, often cruder, image was painted over the older one. In many cases, ancient icons bear several icons layered one on top of the other.

Often a more permanent solution was to place an oklad over the icon: a relief image in metal - silver or gold - that covered everything but the faces and hands. In 1904, the restoration commission carefully removed the oklad covering the Trinity icon. Then began the slow and painstaking removal of the layers of overpainting that masked Rublev's work. It took years, but what their effort finally revealed has ever since amazed those who have been privileged to stand in front of the actual icon (now in the care of the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow). The uncovering of the icon was a momentous event, doing much to inspire the return to classic iconography, and the restoration of a great many other old icons.

The author of this handsomely published book, the Benedictine monk Gabriel Bunge, has undertaken a parallel work of restoration, exploring many earlier images of the three angels who were the guests of Abraham and Sarah's hospitality by the oaks of Mamre, a story related in Genesis.

In this work of profound theological examination, the reader discovers how many centuries of meditation, biblical reflection and earlier artistic effort lie behind the icon painted by Rublev early in the 16th century.

The book is also a presentation of one of the most loved but least known Russian saints, Sergii of Radonezh. As the author writes in a chapter analyzing the Rublev image: "[The martyr and saint] Father Pavel Florensky was not completely wrong when he maintained that St. Sergii was, alongside Andrei Rublev, the true creator of [the icon]. One may even go a step further and suggest that this icon, painted in `the dwelling place of the Holy Trinity' built by Sergii, is intended to depict this mystery of the grace of the Holy Spirit... The attributes that Rublev used to make visible his interpretation are the postures and gestures of the three angels."

For anyone who seeks a deeper appreciation of icons in general, or of the Trinity icon in particular, this fine book, with its many color illustrations, is a treasure.
