“Holy Thomas” icon

In the Fall of 2012, Campus Ministry commissioned Nicholas Markell '84 to write an icon of St. Thomas Aquinas, the University's patron.

Markell wrote the icon called "Holy Thomas" in the tradition of Eastern iconography. The process of writing a sacred image in this style is a form of prayer beginning with the initial design and continuing through its use in Divine Worship.

To learn more, watch a presentation given by iconographer Nicholas Markell all about the creation of the Holy Thomas Icon.
