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