The author makes a useful and important distinction between iconoclasm and vandalism. He situates iconoclasm within a “broader movement of ideas and actions” connected with clearly defined intention. In contrast, vandalism—which is the principle form assumed by image breaking today—is destruction that is unconnected to a movement motivated by a system of ideals.
