St John of Damascus
Translation and Introduction by Andrew Louth

Number 24 of Popular Patristics Series

“Among the defenders of icons and their veneration at the outbreak of iconoclasm, the most distinguished was Saint John Damascene. [...]John wrote three treatises against ‘those who attack the holy images,’ or it might be more accurate to say that he wrote against the iconoclasts three times, for the three treatises are not at all independent: the second treatise makes use of large parts of the first, and is explicitly a simplified version of it; the third treatise follows the second quite closely to begin with, and then develops a systematic theological section, based largely on the first treatise.”
