Book News Annotation:

The aim of this dictionary is to give the reader access to the pictorial tradition that was once the common visual vocabulary of Christians. In over 1,000 entries from "Aaron" to "Zucchetto," the Dictionary identifies and explains the major signs, symbols, figures, and topics that have emerged in 2,000 years of Christian art. Entries include artists and saints, biblical and mythological figures, flora and fauna, liturgical objects and vestments, and theological, art and architecture terms. Profusely illustrated with more than 160 b&w reproductions by some of the greatest Christian artists.
