Description
Palm mats and pilgrim tokens, manuscript illuminations and church frescoes, gilded reliquaries and papier-mâché figurines—what makes these works of art Christian? And what distinguishes them from other works? These are the questions at the center of this beautifully illustrated book, which is both a survey of Christian art around the globe and a probing of what "Christian art" really means, how it functions, where it arises, and whom it serves. Rowena Loverance, head of e-learning at the British Museum and a Visiting Research Fellow at King's College, London, presents and discusses more than 150 exquisite works.
