Artists in every age have offered the principal facts of the mystery of salvation to the contemplation and wonder of believers by presenting them in the splendour of colour and in the perfection of beauty - Cardinal Ratzinger, Introduction to the Compendium of the Catechism. Based on a 15th century tableau kept in a parish church in the south of France, this book presents a series of meditations on Christ's Passion. The potent vision of the late Middle Ages has lost none of its appeal for modern readers, and details of the painting have been carefully arranged with texts from Sacred Scriptures, the Liturgy and the Fathers of the Church, to renrich our contemplation of the mystery of salvation. The book will appeal to both art lovers and people who wish to nourish their faith with beauty, Illustrated. 64 pp.
