Clash of Gods

T F Mathews

$65.00

Paperback
Between the third and sixth centuries, the ancient gods, goddesses, and heroes who had populated the imagination of humankind for a millennium were replaced by a new imagery of Christ and his saints. Thomas Mathews explores the many different, often surprising, artistic images and religious interpretations of Christ during this period. Suggesting that Christian images borrow from the rival imagery of the ancient gods, Mathews makes it possible to appreciate hitherto neglected aspects of Christ in the new art: Christ as magician, Christ as philosopher, Christ as androgynous.
