After looking at a lot of Orthodox iconography, both Eastern and Western (and Coptic and Ethiopian), I was wondering if there is any guide to the various styles of Medieval art. There's really quite a bit of diversity.

Also, Medieval art general.

Do you know what sort of chant is used in Western-rite Orthodoxy?
>>
>>604281
The style was intentional. For instance, this is a 6th Century Byzantine icon, which as you can see is a more sophisticated style. People could do it, but did not because it generally detracted from the point of the art (in this case, it really added to it, because the duality of Christ is conveyed strikingly).

I'm pretty sure that's all Roman Catholic Mozarabic though, because they use an organ.

Orthodox Mozarabic is more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6CbYG3DSPY

<--What about this?

Did all 12 tribes have followers of Jesus spring from them, or is it just romantic thinking? This art is arguably later than medieval.

I don't know what that is supposed to be, but the Body of Christ is literally the Church which is literal Israel. Israel had twelve sons, each the head of a tribe.

No, it's Coptic (II just confirmed with a search). Greek Orthodox is Byzantine style, which looks like pic related.

Coptics very frequently use Arabic just like Greek Orthodox in America frequently use English.

Ethopian Orthodox are pretty interesting though. They were Jewish Ethiopians who converted to Christianity, so they still circumcise and keep kosher. They have the largest Biblical canon of any Church (81 books).

I love early Byzantine style. It truly contained the last vestiges of classical Greco-Roman panel painting despite the strokes getting broader and the forms becoming more abstracted.
