Gospel Figures In Art


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In viewing the great works of sacred Western art, many people find difficulty in understanding the stories and identifying the figures portrayed in them. This informative guide decodes these often-mysterious scenes and reveals a vibrant world of images from the Christian tradition for museum visitors, students, and art enthusiasts alike. Gospel Figures in Art examines depictions of stories and figures from both the New Testament's canonical gospels (the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) and the apocryphal gospels (early Christian writings excluded from the New Testament because of their unsubstantiated authorship), which served as rich sources of inspiration for medieval and Renaissance artists. Illustrated with masterpieces from many of the world's premier museums, the art works provided as visual references are carefully analyzed. Sections are devoted to the principal figures in the life of Jesus Christ-his family and the evangelists-and to the major biographical turning points: his birth and baptism, his public life, the miracles and good deeds he performed, his crucifixion, resurrection, and the events that followed. This indispensable resource makes the icons and narratives of sacred art come to life.

Narrative Art Women In The Gospels And Acts


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

David Malick applies the hermeneutics of narrative analysis to select passages involving women in the Gospels of Mark, Luke, John, and in the Book of Acts. At times, the scope of this analysis extends beyond heightened understanding of how authors presented women as significant characters, and even foils to men, in the narratives. The use of duality and balance in the narratives of Zacharias and Mary, Nicodemus and the Samaritan Woman, and Aeneas, Tabatha, and Cornelius focus on what the author is doing with what he is saying. The use of intercalations, or sandwich stories, brings about heightened meaning when the stories of Jesus’ mother and the religious leaders, or Jairus and the woman with a hemorrhage, or Judas and the woman who anoints Jesus for his burial, are read together in Mark. A first and subsequent reading of the healing of Simon’s mother-in-law in Mark provides the reader with the first picture of true discipleship. The literary technique of a sign-sermon shows logical unity to what might be considered separate units in Mark and Acts.

The Neapolitan Cr Che At The Art Institute Of Chicago


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The 18th-century Neapolitan crèche at the Art Institute of Chicago, which contains over 200 figures arranged in a panorama of street life, represents the pinnacle of a rich artistic heritage. This luxurious catalogue is the first to study the crèche in the context of art and music history. Essays explore the Neapolitan crèche tradition and examine the design of Chicago's example with reference to other important crèches in Europe and the United States. Entries on individual figures identify the characters and types they represent, as well as their social and historical meaning and religious significance. Other entries address groups of figures, animals, and cultural themes present in the crèche. Together the essays and entries highlight the astonishing realism and potent symbolism of these figures, which range from heavenly angels and the Holy Family around the manger to street vendors and revelers feasting, drinking, and dancing in a tavern.

The Fifth Gospel


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This is a new type of commentary on some of the most familiar language and imagery in the Bible, showing how Isaiah has been used by Christians in all kinds of contexts up to the present. There is much interest in reader-response, the history of interpretation and the sociology of sacred texts--in what the text does as much as what it means. With full documentation and illustrations, Sawyer gives an insight into Isaiah's influence, from the cult of the Virgin Mary and anti-Semitism to Christian feminism and liberation theology.
