Publisher Description

Oddly enough it is to the Christian Church whose early fathers put their heaviest ban upon all forms of art that this development is almost wholly due. The reaction against paganism began to die out when the Christian religion was more firmly established and representations of Christ and the Saints executed in mosaic became more and more to be regarded as a necessary or at any rate a regular embellishment of the numerous churches which were built. For these mosaics panel paintings began in time to be substituted but it was long before any of the human feeling of art was to be found in them.
