Throne vision

"Throne vision is a mode of vision as wonder that attunes every faculty to revelation of glory through the creative imagination.

"This should on no account be confused with fantasy, since creative imagination is a mode of uncreated creativity. Uncreated imaginal creativity is the inspiration behind all the liturgical arts, including sacred chant and iconography....

"Throne vision is wisdom's answer to the impoverishment of the imagination in our time. It is the desert's answer to the Inklings. It purifies the heart for wisdom."

Quotation from Priest-Monk Silouan, Wisdom and Wonder, p. 157.
