An explanation of the more important symbols of the Old and New Testaments, the primitive, the medieval and the modern church. This volume does not confine itself to any particular denomination. It is like a dictionary in that it contains a variety of things so as to be useful. The author has added a number of Jewish symbols as well as those commonly used in Catholic and non-Catholic churches to make the book more complete. Gorgeously illustrated with 39 pen drawings and 72 halftone illustrations.

An interesting book for those who sit in church and try to figure out why, for instance, that crescent moon is shown in an English parish church. Do you need to know the traditional shields for the apostles? You can find them here. All this, and much more! Read full review
