== Painted or Written? ==
Ok, then there must be a change made on the [[Theotokos of Tikhvin]] page, because it says that it is believed to be an icon "written" by the apostle Luke. The same applies to the [[Theotokos of the Passion]], and the [[Diocese of Los Angeles and the West (Antiochian)]] pages. Also, for my speech, I said that some people think that Luke wrote the first icon, and others think it was when St. Veronica placed a cloth to Christ's face. But here I see that Ainaius did it in a similar fashion. Which of the two not by hands happened first? --<font color="teal">[[User:Iliada|Iliada]]</font><font color="teal" size="100px"></font> 18:11, March 17, 2009 (UTC)

There's really nothing wrong with saying that icons are "written." It's the insistence that they are not "painted" which makes no sense. Either translation is faithful to the Greek, though in different ways. &mdash;[[User:ASDamick|<font size="3.5" color="green" face="Adobe Garamond Pro, Garamond, Georgia, Times New Roman">Fr.
