Athos, in Serbia, and medieval churches in Italy and other classical sacred art. The narration is an abridged harmony of the Gospels, read by actor and narrator Alexander Scourby.

In a partnership with the Scourby Foundation, Monastery Icons presents the second of a series of inspirational videos that combine Scourby's narration with the classic imagery of icons by Brother Simeon Davis and ancient iconographers.
