Visual Culture and the New Testament. A Student Textbook
How do visual images from the ancient world shed light on New Testament texts? In a methodologically multifaceted manner, the chapters in this volume examine early Christian images and concepts of space in the Pauline corpora with regard to their ancient context. Various approaches in iconography are summarized and applied to the interpretation of texts, taking account of the strengths and limitations of these images, as well as possible future applications. These essays incorporate current viewpoints from archaeology and the history of art. This volume provides an innovative basis for the discussion of the iconographic method and the Pauline corpora.
