The Foundations of Christian Art
IllustratedeBook - 2006
The art historian and philosopher of religion, Titus Burckhardt (1908-1984), was one of the 20th century's most renowned experts on sacred art. The reader is drawn into a pilgrimage through the history of Christian art to architecture, iconography, and illumination; always returning to the fundamental genius of Christianity. Through a luminous interplay of Burckhardt's text, this book becomes a work of art in itself, inviting the reader to "taste and see" the glories of the artistic and spiritual heritage of Christianity.
