Christianity is the most widespread religion in the world. Ars Sacra pays the due tribute to its art and architecture. As an opulent feast of the senses, this glorious tome impresses with the detail views specifically fitted for the format. The viewer comes within grasp of the displayed objects, often even closer than in reality, and can leisurely indulge in the details. Excellently researched texts take the reader on a tour through the epochs and highlight the specific changes in the sacral art, architecture, and culture. Ars Sacra as the standard work is all in one: fascinating glorious tome, comprehensive compendium, and substantial textbook.
