Art and the Christian Apocrypha - download pdf or read online

By David R. Cartlidge,J. Keith Elliot

The Christian canon of scripture, often called the recent testomony, excluded a number of the Church's conventional tales approximately its origins. even if no longer within the Bible, those well known tales have had a strong effect at the Church's traditions and theology, and a very marked impact on visible representations of Christian trust. This booklet offers a lucid advent to the connection among the apocryphal texts and the work, mosaics, and sculpture during which they're usually paralleled, and which were so major in transmitting those non-Biblical tales to generations of churchgoers.
