Description

Using inspirational text and images, art expert Sister Wendy Beckett joins forces with Duccio di Buoninsegna (c. 1255-1319), the first of the Great Italian renaissance painters, to offer a privileged meditation into the story of our salvation in Christ. The mysteries of our faith--darkness and light, falsehood and truth, dying and rising, humanity and divinity--were all very vivid and concrete dimensions of daily life in the Middle Ages. Here, Sister Wendy reminds us that the challenges and consequences of these realities are still with us. "Paperback"show more

Back cover copy

Through inspirational text and images, Sister Wendy Beckett, the world-renowned art expert, and Duccio di Buoninsegna (c. 1255-1319), the first of the Great Italian renaissance painters, join forces to offer us a privileged meditation into the story of our salvation in Christ. The mysteries of our faith-darkness and light, falsity and truth, dying and rising, humanity and divinity, Lent and Easter-were all very vivid and concrete dimensions of daily life in the Middle Ages. Here, Sister Wendy reminds us that this reality-its challenges and consequences-is still with us. Sister Wendy Beckett is a canonically consecrated virgin and hermit, living on the grounds of the Carmelite monastery at Quidenham, in Norfolk, England. A world-renown art expert, she is the author of more than a dozen books and has narrated several major art documentaries for the BBC.show more
