Good afternoon,

Where would I go to get icons to place in my home? Can they be purchased online?

Christ is in our midst!

Francis W.,

There are many sources online. There are many monasteries online, as well as Orthodox seminaries and the Byzantine Catholic seminary in Pittsburgh. I would avoid a source entitled "Monastery Icons" because they are not either Catholic or Orthodox.

I get mine from here: https://easterngiftshop.com
I have actually met the family that runs it.
Although one of my icons came from the Holy Land (a priest brought it back for me as a gift).
But, Ditto Theophan, I'd also avoid "Monastery Icons".

The following are, amongst others, excellent sources:
https://notofthisworldiconsandbooks.com/
https://legacyicons.com/
https://www.uncutmountainsupply.com/

Many Eastern Christian parishes also have bookstores and sell some icons.

And yes, do avoid "Monastery Icons".

I think we're unanimous. Plenty of great places to get icons. "Monastery icons" is not one of those places.
