Since the dawn of Christianity, artists have been fascinated and stirred by the figure of Christ. His likeness appears in frescoes on the walls of catacombs that date from Roman times; he is featured in the stained glass windows of Gothic churches; and he can be found in various forms in today's pop culture. The Biblical Saviour is not a static, immaterial deity: Christ's mortal birth, unusual life and dramatic death make him an accessible subject for religious and secular artists alike. Whether they show the spirituality of God Incarnate or the earthly characteristics of a flesh-and-blood man

Le Christ dans l'art by Ernest Renan ( )
3 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in French and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La figure du Christ a, depuis toujours, inspiré les artistes. Déjà, dans les catacombes de l'Antiquité romaine, son portrait apparaissait sur les fresques murales. Plus tard, la vie du Christ se découpe dans les vitraux des églises gothiques ou se dessine sur les toiles des artistes de la Renaissance. Cependant, la figuration du Seigneur ne répond pas à une codification particulière et peut prendre, selon les artistes, des traits divers et variés. Qu'elles soulignent la spiritualité d'un dieu incarné ou les caractéristiques terrestres d'un homme de chair et de sang, les représentations nombreus

Christus in der Kunst by Ernest Renan ( )

Seit der Geburt des Christentums sind Künstler fasziniert von Christus. Sein Abbild erscheint auf Fresken in Katakomben aus der Römerzeit, auf Buntglasscheiben in gotischen Kirchen sowie in verschiedenen Darstellungen in der heutigen Pop- Kultur. Der biblische Erlöser ist keine statische, körperlose Gottheit: Christi Geburt, sein ungewöhnliches Leben und sein dramatischer Tod machen ihn zu einem interessanten Motiv für religiöse und säkulare Künstler. Ob sie die Geistlichkeit des Leibhaftigen oder die menschlichen Charakteristika eines Mannes aus Fleisch und Blut zeigen, künstlerische Dars
