Two thousand years ago, a girl from Nazareth was transformed by her simple "yes" into the Mother of God—still the subject of veneration, speculation, and controversy worldwide. With more than 60 color images, this broad overview by the bestselling author of Churches and Monuments is a celebration of how the Virgin has been depicted in art—from classic works by Michelangelo and Fra Angelico to the multi-cultural re-imaginings of the 21st century—and how she has inspired pilgrimages and been worshipped in shrines worldwide. To create a composite portrait of Mary, Judith Dupré delves into the Bible and the historical record, rounding out her profile with quotations from scripture and poems by Hildegard of Bingen, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and Charles Dickens.
