Translation of abstract (English)

The present book deals with the creation of sacred spaces in Byzantium, Medieval Russia and the Eastern Christian world. It is based on ten studies of last seven years in which three new notions - Hierotopy, Spatial Icons and Image-Paradigms, renew the methodology of art history, have been suggested and discussed by the author. The three notions are interrelated but different. The term Hierotopy stands for the entire framework, intending to fix a special stratum of historical phenomena. The Hierotopy (or ierotopia), consisting of two Greek roots "hieros" (sacred) and "topos" (place, space, notion), means the making of sacred spaces regarded as a special form of creativity, and a field of historical research which reveals and analyses the particular examples of that creativity. The term "Spatial Icons", concerning the iconic imagery presented as spatial visions, was conceived to describe the most important part of hierotopic phenomena, existing beyond flat pictures or any combination of art objects. The Image-Paradigm is an instrumentum studiorum to analyze this specific category of images.
