The Arts of the Church

Excerpt from The Arts of the Church: Symbolism of the Saints Astudy of symbolism is essential for the understanding of almost all branches of ecclesiastical art, painting, sculpture in stone or wood, and the archi tecture of various ages. It is shown on the walls of churches, fonts, screens, miseri cords, carvings, pictures by great'mediaeval artists, and enters largely into the sacred art of all countries. It has, therefore, been deemed advisable to include the subject of Iconography in this series of the Arts of the Church. The writer has endeavoured to record the symbols of those saints whose figures appear most frequently in churches and in works of Sacred Art, and to give such brief accounts of their lives and legends as may account for the selection of their symbols. The very limited space at his disposal has, of course, prevented any full treatment of the subject but the reader will probably find this book, especially the indexes, sufficient to enable lhim to recognize the identity of the figures.
