This is the first comprehensive treatment of a theology of visual symbol by a Roman Catholic theologian. Aidan Nichols challenges us to discover in the visual arts a model which goes beyond the limitations of words in modern theology. Nichols presents the major historical themes for the development of an aesthetic and symbolic Judeo-Christian theology. The full scope of the tradition from Genesis until today is reflected "to show that the model of artwork can embrace the positive affirmations of the anti-incarnationalists about the full humanity and therefore historical contingency of Jesus.
