Churches abound in symbols and embellishments whose significance is not always clear, even to believers. The author of The Secret Language of the Renaissance examines dozens of the world's most famous Christian holy sites—including Notre Dame, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Scrovegni Chapel, and the Sagrada Familia—and decodes the symbolism in their stained-glass windows, statuary, murals, and architectural designs. This book features more than 180 color photographs, while the text serves as a grounding in Christian iconography and an introduction to many of the most important artists of the Renaissance.
