Terme Définition
Icon

A sacred image generally painted on a wooden board, often with a golden coloured background, which is typical of Byzantine art. From 730 to 843 the destruction of these images was called iconoclasm. The iconographer is the painter; iconography is the science that studies this type of art, the meanings of which are meant to be symbolic-religious.

 
Iconostasis

An architectonical dividing structure which separates the presbytery from the naves in western Christian churches.  There are normally columns which hold up an architrave. Sacred images (icons) are displayed there.
