By David R. Cartlidge,J. Keith Elliot

The Christian canon of scripture, referred to as the hot testomony, excluded the various Church's conventional tales approximately its origins. even though now not within the Bible, those renowned tales have had a robust impact at the Church's traditions and theology, and a very marked influence on visible representations of Christian trust. This ebook offers a lucid creation to the connection among the apocryphal texts and the work, mosaics, and sculpture within which they're usually paralleled, and which were so major in transmitting those non-Biblical tales to generations of churchgoers.
