The Oxford Dictionary of Christian Art and Architecture explains a wide range of terms used in the study of the history of Christian art and architecture including subjects, topics, themes, artists, works, movements, and buildings. This long-awaited new edition of Peter and Linda Murray's
classic text continues to provide an invaluable, authoritative, and engaging guide to interpreting Christian art both for students and teachers of the subject, as well as non-specialists and those without a formal education in Christianity.

The new editor, the Reverend Tom Devonshire Jones, has been aided by over a dozen expert contributors, fully updating the text for the new century. Areas that have been expanded upon include the artwork, artists, and innovations of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries (such as the relationship between
Christianity and film). Coverage includes art from around the world, with new entries upon the Christian art of North America, Latin America, Australia, and of the non-Western world, as well as Christian artistic interactions with other religions, including Judaism and Islam.

The detailed bibliography has been heavily revised and updated, increasing the number of sources cited and expanding on sources relevant to the study of non-traditional Christian art. The updated bibliography will be placed on a companion webpage to the Dictionary, which will also feature an
appendix of web links to sites of relevant interest.

The editor and his editorial board are to be commended for their diligence and innovations in revisiting both this expansive topic and revising a classic.
This wonderful book explains and defines many of the terms used in the study of Christian art and architecture in an easy-to-read style and handy format.
Tom Devonshire Jones has breathed new life into what was already an excellent resource from Peter and Linda Murray. It's the sort of book that belongs on most everyone's shelf.
Review from previous edition It is impossible to over praise this book.
Clear, succinct, and enthralling.

Peter Murray was Professor of the History of Art at Birkbeck College, in the University of London, from 1967 until his retirement in 1980. Linda Murray taught art history in the University of London Extra-Mural Department from 1949 to 1979.Tom Devonshire Jones studied Classics and Theology at Oxford, always with an eye on the art of Antiquity and Christianity. Since ordination in the Church of England in 1960 the interactions of art and religion have been a feature of his parish and campus ministries in England and the United States.
