About this item

This volume is a rare chance to see his exquisite painting by Rembrandt van Rijn alongside a selection of the artist’s treatments of other biblical episodes, and works by his contemporaries. Rembrandt took an unusual and personal approach to biblical subjects, exploring the nature of divine encounter and the complexities of its representation, making use of the viewer’s knowledge of the subject whilst finding ways to bring the familiar to life. A book for art, biblical and philosohpy students Divine Encounter examines these works as a group and considers them in relation to theological and artistic debates of the period.
