Summary

This book explores the visual images produced by two of the world's great religions, and the cultural and spiritual traditions that inform and support them. Its purpose is threefold. First, its attention to the way in which the images embody history, myth, and doctrine offers a unique comparative introduction to Buddhism and Christianity. Second, it invites readers to see similarities and differences between the images as local inflections of a universal archetype, and the basis for dialogue between the two faiths. And finally, it makes some of the world's most profound and moving art more accessible by illustrating and explaining its patterns, symbols, and styles. Illustrated with one hundred twenty carefully selected and matched images of Buddhist and Christian iconography from around the world, this work will be of value to anyone interested in the fine arts as an expression of human spirituality.
