Bought this for my daughters History of Art to do with patronage by Popes and she found it very useful. Lovely pictures presented but quite brief in its description of subject matter.

HASH(0x8fd35e58) out of 5 stars excellent source 20 Dec. 2008
By RS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As someone who has an art history degree, I find this entire series (Guide to Imagery) a fantastic reference source for people of all interest levels. The books are broken up into sections for easy reference. For example, this book had a section on all of the artifacts used during a mass. They define the item and its use, and then give examples of that object in an artwork.

I purchased this book for a friend of my father's who works in the Church. He found it to be incredibly in-depth and well researched (and he knows his stuff).

HASH(0x8fd35eb8) out of 5 stars Title should read "THEMES, EVENTS AND SYMBOLS OF THE CHURCH IN ART" 20 Jun. 2015
By Napa Artist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book based on its title "The History of the Church in Art" which implied an illustrated chronological history of important events of the Church. Well, it isn't, not really. The book is arranged primarily by THEMES -- i.e., liturgical objects and furnishings, clothes, vestments, symbolic animals, monk, priest, bishop, etc., so if you're expecting an illustrated chronological history of the church, give this book a pass. It is not a history book. There is, however, a short section on "episodes in the history of the church" (about 50 pages of this 380-page book) but not enough on the subject in my opinion to merit its title. Well illustrated, easy to read and lots of information that is why I've decided to keep it. 3 STARS,
