graven image , Ten Commandments

During this period the Byzantine emperor Leo III issued his 730 edict banning the worship of religious imagery, declaring it a blatant violation of the Ten Commandments' prohibition on "graven images." Many early icons were seized and destroyed. Not the paintings at St. Catherine, which had by then come under Muslim rule and was thus exempt from Byzantine laws.

Commandments of God, The Ten:天主十誡:天主在西奈山授與梅瑟(摩西)的誡命(出廿1-17;申五6-21;瑪五17-47)。十誡為:(1) 欽崇一天主在萬有之上。(2) 毋呼天主聖名,以發虛誓。(2) 守瞻禮主日。(4) 孝敬父母。(5) 毋殺人。(6) 毋行邪淫。(7) 毋偷盜。(8) 毋妄證。(9)毋願他人妻。(10)毋貪他人財物。又稱 Decalog(-ue)。耶穌把十誡歸納成愛的法律:愛天主在萬有之上、愛人如己。
