The Christian Art Tradition
Sixty-two works of art and artifacts
Sixty-two one-thousand-word essays
From the ancient world to the modern era
A Thousand Words by Mary Elizabeth Podles is a collection of her popular columns on art from Touchstone: A Journal of Mere Christianity.
Included in this book are her first 62 essays, which appeared in Touchstone from 2012 through 2022. She has also added thirteen new essays introducing each historical period—from the Ancient World to the Modern Era—by which her subjects have been arranged.
These thousand-word reflections offer readers a wide array of illuminating insights on art, culture, history, and, of course, the Christian tradition.
