Le Christ représenté dans les icônes et dans l'art roman expriment, selon l'auteur, un art œcuménique, c'est-à-dire une vision théologique commune peinte dans un langage artistique commun. Au tour de l'an 1000, tous les chrétiens pouvaient lire et comprendre ces images. Cette unité s'est malheureusement perdue pendant le second millénaire de l'histoire chrétienne. D'autres études suivent.

This book claims that the Hostility Theory (early Christians had no images since these were idols) is false. It argues that the Christian, artistic tradition is not the result of image-loving, Greek converts flooding into the Church, but is based on a biblical and theological tradition that is favorable to non-idolatrous images. The early Christians expressed their faith in word and image.

It begins here. This book is over 550 pages long! I put all of myself into this. I know this is the goal of the poet, and probably every poet in the world would say this. I do not keep secrets when I write. This is as close to me as a person can get, probably more is contained here about me than you or anyone could get by knowing me personally. In person I am not as open or confident.
