Product Overview

In this richly illustrated volume, Rosa Giorgi argues that because much of Western art depicts key events, leaders, and practices in the history of the Christian Church, knowledge of that history is critical to an appreciation of many of our great masterpieces. Giorgi ranges from the artistic representation of liturgical objects, including altars, crosses, and censers, to the vestments of the variety of clerics, to devotional practices documented in paintings depicting prayer, communal meals, funeral rites, religious processions, and cult practices, to artworks that capture important episodes from the Church''s history and portraits of the Church''s great leaders.
