Summary

  • These historical studies - complemented by 174 black-and-white photographs and 46 color plates - seek to redefine the discussion of Calvinism's impact on the visual arts through an exploration of Reformed artistic influences in England, France, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, and America. Bringing fresh perspectives to the subject of Calvinism and the visual arts, Seeing beyond the Word will be a valuable resource for readers with interests ranging from art history to culture studies, from Reformed history to the relationship between worship and church architecture.
