What’s an Iconoclast?

An iconoclast is “a breaker of icons or images” or “one who attacks cherished beliefs as shams”, so says my very old yet reliable Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. Anyone who opposes the religious use of images would be an iconoclast. An icon is an “image or representation”. An example of a religious icon would be an image of a saint, the Virgin Mary or Christ. The word iconic is used in art (sculptures, statues) when it pertains to an image or an icon. Iconolatry is “image worship”.
