Rublev's Old Testament Trinity: Reflections on the Icon - eBookCategory: Old Testament Trinity IconMillions of people have seen copies of the Icon that is often, inaccurately called The Old Testament Trinity, but few have had guidance in understanding The Hospitality of Abraham - its correct title. This little book attempts, simply, to explore its meaning and its use in prayer. Originally published by St Paul Publications, it has been continuously in print for over 25 years. Over that period of time the Icon it explores, and reflects upon, has become more and more popular.The wonderful Russian mystic, Andrei Rublev, who painted the Hospitality of Abraham, left no directions or instructions on how to interpret his master-piece. It was simply intended to be prayed before; the person at prayer is left to interpret it for themselves. There is no definitive, or correct, way to understand the Icon and benefit from it. The author, very aware of how enriching the daily use of the Icon has been for himself, offers one way. Another person at prayer may benefit in a different way particular to themselves.This book was not originally written in the quiet of a monastery, or a convent but with the threat of constant interruption against the background of a noisy family of four. In spite of the inevitable family distractions, I am convinced that the family is the proper setting for thoughts on the family of the Holy Trinity. May you be as rewarded as the writer has been in the use of the Icon.
