  • Imaging the Bible examines how reading the Bible visually can help us appreciate the intricacies of the biblical narrative and shows how the stories of the Bible have been interpreted visually within specific traditions. The Bible is seen as not merely a book of doctrine but as the main source of inspiration of the arts in Western Europe.

    The book introduces the reader to the broad and inclusive range of ways that the Bible has been interpreted in the arts , from the earliest Christian art through the medieval period and the Renaissance and up to the twentieth century. Written for non-specialists and assuming no previous knowledge of art history, this is an ideal introduction to Biblical art for students and for the general reader.
