Since the dawn of Christianity, artists have been fascinated and stirred by the figure of Jesus Christ. This richly illustrated book explores the various ways that Christ is rendered in art, from Cimabue's Nativity scenes and Fra Angelico's Crucifixions to the provocative portraits of Salvador Dalí and Andres Serrano. Covering a tremendous amount of ground, Ernest Renan discusses the tradition and presents remarkable samples of Christian art, including a 15th-century paper-mâché bust of Jesus, an 1800-year-old fresco of the Adoration of the Magi found in a catacomb, and a haunting mosaic portrait from medieval Istanbul.
