Abstract:

"Divine Love: The Art of the Nativity explores the ways in which the birth of Christ, at the heart of the Christian mystery, has been depicted from the earliest times. The book is thematic rather than chronological. Here Sarah Drummond explores the legends and traditions that have played into the way artists have visualised the Nativity. She discovers how, and why, the images and the elements that are shown evolved have. We learn about the essential ingredients concerning the Nativity and about the layers of meaning that the images reveal; and how have artists found ways to express both the human and the Divine natures of the Christ Child?"--Back cover.
