The Beauty of Holiness: Giotto’s Passion Frescoes as a Prelude to the Artistic Afterlife of the Supper at Emmaus

Höfundur: Brian Leslie Bishop Rafbók

In this book, Brian Bishop simply pauses to look at fifty-seven beautiful images that feature the life and death of Jesus and the supper at which he appeared three days after his burial to two broken-hearted disciples. He finds the visual approach to the gospel stories rewarding and attempts to place the paintings in some historical context as an aid to understanding, but, essentially offers pauses for thought and reflection upon world-changing events. The book may be dipped into as time and interest allows. The beautifully produced color images of wonderful works of art provide constant companionship.
