The Christian canon of scripture, often called the recent testomony, excluded a number of the Church's conventional tales approximately its origins. even though now not within the Bible, those well known tales have had a robust impression at the Church's traditions and theology, and a very marked impression on visible representations of Christian trust. This ebook offers a lucid creation to the connection among the apocryphal texts and the work, mosaics, and sculpture within which they're usually paralleled, and that have been so major in transmitting those non-Biblical tales to generations of churchgoers.
