Fernando Lanzi con Saints and their Symbols: Recognizing Saints in Art and in Popular Images

Críticas For its comprehensiveness, attractiveness, and usefulness as a reference, this work is patently a leading work in its field.The Midwest Book Review Saints and Their Symbols will make for a lovely coffee table book and should appeal to all who are interested in the lives and legacies of the treasures of heaven.Catholic Studies Saints and Their Symbols: Recognizing Saints in Art and in Popular Images is a wonderful resource for images and historical information.National Catholic Reporter This excellent oversized book gives us the keys to recognizing saints in art by noticing their symbols and the attributes that identify them.Catholic Library World The art reproductions are excellent, and the indexes by names and by key words are helpful. There is much to ponder here about the incarnational faith that we share with marvelous people all through the centuries.Review for Religious A wonderful feature of this book, unlike others out there, is that the authors usually explain the reasons for a particular saint's job as patron through delightfully trivial facts.Pastoral Music It will be a useful addition to art collections.CHOICE In elaborate paintings, sketches, illustrations, photographs and detailed, interpretive texts, this oversized and brilliantly colorful book is not just a feast for the eyes but nourishment for mind and heart as well. The authors are experts in their field and the commentaries are addressed to our own times. Mindful that Christian faith includes the communion of saints, as the creed attests, those who gaze in wonder at the book's contents may well find themselves stimulated to more generous service in their daily lives.Prairie Messenger Reseña del editor Images that tell the story of salvation illustrate saints in various scenes. They are often depicted by an emblem or icon. It used to be that we knew enough about the saints to recognize them in images or artworks without much trouble, but it is becoming a struggle. Saints and Their Symbols is a solution. It is a guide for recognizing and understanding the saints. This text explains such things as why so many of the saints appear in images with Jesus and the Virgin Mary, yet remain unnamed, which symbols are associated with each saint, and what their roles were in Christian salvation. With full-color images and biographical information about the saints, it is a work of popular religious culture and anthropology. Ver Descripción del producto
