The Transfiguration in Byzantine Theology and Iconography

This book taps the rich vein of the blending of theology and art in the Middle Ages, in particular, the evolution of the imagery and theology surrounding the Transfiguration of Christ.

In this well-researched volume, the author discusses in detail every philosophical and ritual application of the Transfiguration icon-the mountain, the cloud, the mandorla, 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.

Colour cover, Colour plates and b&w illlustrations throughout.
