Q&A

Did the Church condemn the use of images as idolatrous in the past?

Question:

Why has the Church approved the use of images when the Church Council of Chalcedon (A.D. 753) condemned them as being &quot;idolatrous and heretical, a temptation to the faith that originated with the devil&quot;; and when Popes Gregory III and Constantine V (in 740) also condemned them?
