Bethlehem Icon Centre

Bethlehem Icon Centre

Rooted within the Tradition of Eastern Christianity it is open to Christians of all backgrounds, both east and west, indeed to anyone attracted to look deeper into this mystical art which came to birth in the Holy Land over 1,500 years ago. The Bethlehem Icon Centre is based in Bethlehem, the birthplace and ancestral home of Jesus Christ. It is dedicated to the renewal of iconography as a living part of the spiritual landscape of the Holy Land through a commitment to the highest standards of sacred liturgical art.

By reviving an essential element of their ancient culture it seeks to strengthen the dwindling Christian population of the city and of the region. It is the only project of its kind in the Middle East.

It also seeks to serve the wider community through offering opportunities for individuals from around the world, Christian or not, to study iconography in the unique spiritual environment of Bethlehem, the ancestral City of Christ and its birthplace where God first looked upon humanity through human eyes, and where, through the eyes of the Most Holy Theotokos, humanity looked upon the face of God and lived.
