The fourth volume of the "Art Dictionaries" series, Episodes and personalities in the Gospels, plunges into the vast ocean of religious art to approach, case by case, the individual scenes taken from the Gospels and their interpretation on the part of the greatest artists over the centuries.
Through careful iconographic analysis each painting reveals its figures, landscape, symbols, episodes, situations and devotional moments, the dramatic and enlightening moments described in holy scriptures.

The book is organized in eight chapters: The Evangelists and their symbols, The family of Jesus, Birth and childhood of Jesus, Stories of St. John the Baptist, The public life of Jesus, Miracles and parables, The Passion, After the Resurrection. Each topic is covered in a two-page section, with clear descriptions and comments, presenting multiple pictorial interpretations. 450 photographs, all in full color.

Indices of episodes, personalities and artists.
