Nevertheless, stylistic changes did happen over the course of time, and many variant local manners and types of icon evolved.

For anyone familiar with previous icon literature, the range and nature of the large amount of illustrative material that Tarasov provides and analyzes must be astonishing.

This was resisted by the poor and unprivileged, by monks, by women, by provincials, and ultimately (in 843) the iconoclast elite capitulated: icons were restored in what was commemorated as the Feast of Orthodoxy.

Since then icons have been (in theory, at least) not superstitiously worshipped, but venerated as a two-way channel of communication with the supernatural world.

The showpiece medieval icons are completely absent (even the quasi-obligatory Rublyov 'Old Testament Trinity'!

); instead, the popular icon-art of the three centuries preceding the Revolution - deeply unfashionable in the 20th century, generally dismissed by art history as styleless and repetitive - is displayed in all its variegation and (often) strangeness, and set in a context of 'high' art, of popular prints, book illus- trations, vernacular Western painting, etc.
