Languages of publication
This paper proposes a prolegomena to an analitytic theology of holy images. For this end, we will consider some historical and epistemological facts as regards philosophical analysis and analytic theology, and then we will confer about their relations to images. Finally, we will try to unfold the logical structure of holy icons, and, as an object-lesson, we will explicate the problem of idolatry by means of our preceding considerations.
