Abstract:

"Focusing on Christian subject matter that has been a source of inspiration in painting, sculpture, and architecture, this is an exploration of the art influenced by biblical stories and Christian history and beliefs.

"This book includes over 1,700 A-Z entries on the people and topics represented in art, artists and their works, buildings, places, themes, and visual images; major essays on periods and styles important in Christian art and architecture; hundreds of specific examples of works of art and where to locate them; and an invaluable glossary of architectural terms and a wide-ranging bibliography."--BOOK JACKET.
