Mary Jane Miller's collections of modern Icons are visual meditations whose root is in traditional Icon Painting. Today, women iconographers around the world continue to create gorgeous work to preserve sacred art and iconography. Byzantine style modern icons are both a religious art form and meditation to develop the art of living well. As a modern Byzantine icon painter, I join my voice to other modern iconographers who speak for women icon artists including those who were unheard in the days of the early church.
The books on iconography authored by Mary Jane Miller are filled with spiritual imagery that offers contemporary ideas with an old-world feel for religious art and the divine. The images are fantastic meditations, ancient stories, they speak of bold spirituality, while at the same time offer a reminiscence, accurate and valuable visual history
Byzantine Iconography is an ancient technique filled with mystery even today, Women icon painters are preserving the icon …

Social and Environmental, Planet Earth and Humanity
No one wants a hotter, more polluted and less bio-diverse planet, though most people want the modern lifestyles made possible by cheap energy, abundant food and industrial productivity. There is no global agreements to limit the waste and destruction caused so eight billion people can have lifestyles of abundance. It took billions of years for us to get to today. The harm we’re currently causing to the planet will eventually make it so none of us can live well.

This isn't about Catholic iconography. It's just another eco-activist propaganda piece. It reads like one of Pope Francis' less-inspired sermons.

Mary Jane Miller's books are beautiful chronicles in iconography. IN LIGHT of WOMEN, adds to this venue serving primarily a Christian audience by broadening an already lively discussion about the spiritual context we live in, and the important subject of women’s voices being fully recognized and valued in today’s society. The text and imagery format is ideal for group discussions about women in the bible. Women's groups will especially find that focusing on one icon at a time makes for exciting debate. My fascination with narrative icons is particularly strong because of the beauty they radiate and how they teach our community using only visual language. For almost three decades, the icons have slowly spoken and quietly revealed their mysteries. I feel confident my book will stimulate discussions and revelations about Christian art and theology. Even if you do not already appreciate religious imagery, the fascinating tradition inherent in icons, the work will speak to you and draw …More

Reviewed by EileenQuinn Knight, Ph.D. Profiles in Catholicism
Celestial,exquisite, magnificent are the first three words that come to mind when I read this book. The author invites the reader into two types of reading, On the one hand, it is conventionally written text of words. On the other hand, the reader is invited into a particular type of graphic storytelling called the icon. This storytelling is done through images, colors and shapes. The storytelling offered here wants the reader to engage with the story, in response to what you see as you ponder the image. The icons engage us first visually, then our emotions, our mind and our imagination.
Secrets and tips for new ways to frame the Jesus story and the love of Iconography through interior reflections and authors Meditations. The images are juxtaposed with text describing each image's history, religious context and my reflections on our world today. The book includes a Table of Contents, a thorough introduction to iconography, …More

Bruce H Parker Reviewed in the United States on June 29, 2020
Mary Jane Miller’s In Light of Women, One Woman’s Journey with Icons is a provocative addition to the growing body of work (both image and text) that is extending the reach of the icon beyond the boundaries of the Orthodox tradition. Following a brief introduction to the history of the icon, and a lyrical meditation on the properties of the earth pigments and egg yolk that she mixes to create her colors, she offers a selection of her icons arranged in three chapters: Mary Icons – The Most Popular through the Ages; The Gospel of Mary Magdalene – Icons Inspired by the Gnostic Text and Creative Insights and Image from Traditional Theology; and Feminine Voice – Classic Icons Interpreted with the Focus on Women. Each icon is accompanied by Miller’s reflections, short essays that fuse theological with personal ruminations.
Miller has developed an exquisite and distinctive voice as a writer of icons, adapting the style and …More

Because iconography is a discipline of reproducing the same image for the purpose of teaching it is paramount to grasp the idea that there is variation in repetition. The message stays the same because of a general format and consensus of elements. An example of what I mean, can be seen here in these five renditions of the classic Mary of Tenderness icon. Two important characteristics are key to the message: the face of Jesus touching the face of Mary in their loving embrace and Mary's two hands. With one hand she holds her son, her creation as he was born of her. In contrast, with her other hand, she is presenting her son to us, as the divine child.
Having said this, any of the icons in my collection can be found by title in a variety of forms and styles, depending on the country of origin, the iconographer and the era it was painted. sanmiguelicons.com/contemporary-icon-paintings/

What is an Iconostasis?
In most Orthodox Churches of Western Europe, you will find a wall across the altar area. It is an architectural feature covered by icons, created to separate the Sanctuary from the Nave. It represents the division between Heaven and Earth. The screen of icons creates a separation between sacred, holy space and the sanctuary, where the congregants gather. The Royal doors are placed in the center through which only the priest may go in and out. The complexity and size of different iconostasis vary greatly from one church and region to the other, ranging from a few images to very elaborate structures with many levels and a large number of images. Narrative icons are usually small in size; they are exhibited along one row mid center to commemorate the life of Christ.
The churches around the world support a hierarchy, ranking the clergy above the faithful. It is said God comes down to earth through the great iconostasis to converse and bless the worshipper. There …More

The Beauty of Eucharist.
Eucharist 18" x 24" hand hammered pewter and egg tempera
Artist Statement: Eucharistic worship is simplified here in the visual. It represents a distortion of time and space where the one who presides, the wholeness of the host and the Challis call the viewer to participate. Eucharist stimulates our mind to recall the beauty in both being servant and served. In the sacrament we balance our human desire for wholeness and our love and appreciation for the divine. The number 12 is a hint of the final revelation were we become the priesthood of all having begun with twelve disciples. From the Gospel of Thomas, “On what day will the rest of the dead come into being? And on what day will the new world come? “ I believe Eucharist can take us where we can potentially come into our true divine self in Christ.

About Mary Jane Miller.
In large part, Women Iconographers are keeping the tradition alive today. Iconography is an ancient technique dating back 1,600 years. Miller has 28 years experience in the art form as a painter, teacher and writer mixing contemporary thought and new theology to the images. Icons strive to reveal the beauty of humankind and our potential to see the divine in all things. Mary Jane Miller is a master iconographer, maybe a tad rebellious but faithful.
