Florensky's proof of the existence of God

  • language: English


Summary


The paper provides an analysis of the validity of Pavel Florensky?s claim that ?the most persuasive philosophic proof of God?s existence? states that ?There exists the icon of the Holy Trinity by St. Andrei Rublev; therefore, God exists.? Although icons occupy a prominent position in Orthodox theology and liturgy, they would not be considered what they are outside Orthodox religious tradition, and so the existence of God must be the starting point before any considerations of the sacred character of icons can be made.
