Cambridge University Press, 10 abr. 1997 - 221 páginas
This book is a study of the theology of the Trinity as expressed in the literature and art of the late Anglo-Saxon period. It examines the meaning of the representions of the Trinity in tenth- and eleventh-century English manuscripts and their relationship both to Anglo-Saxon theology and to earlier debates about the legitimacy of representations of the divine. The book's unifying theme is that of the image, and illustrations of many of the images discussed are provided.This book will be of interest to art historians, theologians and literary scholars alike.
