A study of the status of Icons in Islamic and Christian instructions
IBNA: Dr Ali-Mohammad Saberi, editor of philosophy sessions, said: "This session will be held with attendance of Dr Amir Nasri, professor of philosophy at Azad University."

He said the main subject of this session is Icons and explained: "So we should first deal with the issue of Iconology and in the next step deal with Iconoclasm."

Dr Saberi then referred to arts like miniature, calligraphy, altar design and tile work as symbols of Islamic art, and called them the special codes in the world of mysticism which are inspired to the artist and manifested in the form of arts."

He remarked: "Westerners do not consider the Bible as words of divinity, but call it as instructions of Jesus Christ. Accordingly, the art of calligraphy has no place in there. On the contrary, according to Islamic instructions, the Holy Quran is the word of God and so in order to propagate it we have applied different forms of arts such as calligraphy. Therefore, this art has a particular position in our religion."

He finally said: "This session will make a comparative survey of Iconoclasm in Islamic and Christian arts."

The specific session "Iconoclasm in Islamic and Christian Arts" which is to be held on Wednesday 3 November at the House of Literati (located at no.2, Khajeh Nasir Alley, South Palestine St., Enghelab Ave.)
