METAMORPHOSIS: THE TRANSFIGURATION IN BYZANTINE THEOLOGY AND ICONOGRAPHY

Author: ANDREAS ANDREOPOULOS #: 8039
This book taps the rich vein of the blending of theology and art in the Middle Ages, with particular reference to the icon of the Transfiguration of Christ. The author discusses in detail many aspects of the Transfiguration icon—the mountain, the cloud, the positioning of the apostles, the aspects of the Old Testament prophets and the image of Christ Himself—taking the reader through an illustrated historical journey. Andreopoulos`s expert use of the New Testament, together with early Christian and Jewish texts, as well as apocryphal writings and pagan sources,elucidates the evolution of art and doctrine that surround this scriptural manifestation of Christ as God.
