About this item

Considering how frequently ancient writers used physical appearance to indicate a person's inner qualities, Taylor finds it remarkable that nowhere in the Bible or other early Christian literature is there a word about the appearance of Jesus. She takes readers on a quest, moving through the portrayals of Jesus in art, relics, and literature to see whether there are vestiges of true information about Jesus' appearance in any of these. Her topics include the European Jesus: the Letter of Lentulus, Jesus' self-portrait: acheropitae, Christ almighty: the Byzantine cosmocrator, beards and basics: the philosopher, ugly or unkempt: the wandering vagabond, and top to toe: dressing Jesus.
