Summary/Abstract: ”The Burning Bush”, a symbol of epiphany, a place of getting out of the hiding place, of ”revelationi”, of the sacred moment from Horeb Mountain, when God first spoke to Moses, becomes the emblematic image for the spiritual movement with the same name, launched in 1943 by Sandu Tudor at Antim Monastery, Romania. The icon ”The Burning Bush of Virgin Mary” brought to Antim by the monk Ioan Kulîghin, was almost always present at the group’s meetings, being the embodiment of the passion for knowledge and divine experience. A sign of the appearance of the sacred among secular things, the image of the Virgin Mary in the middle of the burning bush which does not destroy, but brings to salvation, is re-used in contemporary iconography, in works ylddfsdnfwhich confesconfesss the same passion for the heavenly Country.
