Cathedrals: Clues to Identifying Biblical Figures in Cathedrals Around the World.
Have you ever stood before a statue in a Cathedral and tried to guess the identity? Have you wandered aimlessly through churches, overwhelmed by the imagery and left frustrated. This presentation will help you identify the Biblical Figures in Cathedrals around the world. A great tool for any traveler, it unlocks the artistic clues the great painters, sculptors, and glassmakers provided to identify important biblical characters and early Christian saints. Its purpose is to guide visitors globally through any cathedral and enable recognition of saints and martyrs in works of art.
Dr. Lorrie Wenzel is a Professor of Scripture, former college faculty member, church historian and noted expert in biblical imagery in great cathedrals. Her new bookas a series of presentations on individual cathedrals. People asked if she would write something to help them remember the detailed information they heard in the lectures. Three years, eight countries, and three hundred churches and cathedrals later, the task is completed. The photographs in the book were taken by her husband, Dr. Mark Wenzel on their trips to Spain, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, England, Italy, Hungary, Austria, and Italy. Books will be on sale after the presentation.
