Description

Exploring the visual images produced by two of the world's great religions, this text considers the cultural and spiritual translations that inform and support them, focusing on three key principles. Firstly, it looks at how these images embody history, myth and doctrine, offering a comparative introduction to Buddhism and Christianity. Secondly, it invites readers to see similarities and differences between the images as local inflections of a universal archetype, and the basis for dialogue between two faiths. Finally it aims to make some of the world's most profound and moving art more accessible by illustrating and explaining its patterns and styles.
