Icons of Fr. Seraphim [Rose]
- In the photos, there was a page of 3 icons of Fr. Seraphim.
In one he holds a closed book, in another a scroll and in the third
an open book.
A couple of questions:
1) Is there a difference in iconography between using a scroll and
using a book (I assume a Gospel book)?
2) I've heard of differences in icons of Christ with open and closed
books - but not of saints. What might be the significance, if any
3) Does anyone know what the scroll read and what the book reads?
