Mary's Mail Shirt and Joseph's Pants

Curiosities and Hidden Secrets in Christian Art
A woman wearing the papal crown, Joseph taking off his pants next to the manger or Mary placing a talisman around her son’s neck – these and other curiosities can be found in Christian art, even in the most sacred halls of the Vatican. What might these images mean? Do they indicate that the Inquisition was a failure? No, Christian art has always been subject to clerical censorship. But the artists also had their methods and managed time and again to fool those guardians of faith ...

In an entertaining and informative way and with many illustrations and examples, Josef Imbach explains the imagery of art that is widely unknown even today. Thanks to his theological and artistic expertise, he elucidates their hidden meanings.
