Iconostasis, Orthodox Church of St Seraphim, Little Walsingham
Iconostasis, Orthodox Church of St Seraphim, Little Walsingham
The iconostasis separates the sanctuary from the nave. To enter the sanctuary, as the priest does when he recites the Eucharistic Prayer, is to enter Heaven. This explains the icons of saints and prophets, symbolising the holy ones who live at one with God in His kingdom and reminding the congregation that they too are drawn into Heaven in the celebration of the Liturgy itself. It's also very beautiful.
