Some of the most profound and enduring works of art in Western civilization were produced for private devotion and public worship. To access and understand this art today, we must be aware of its context, its intended audience, and its functions in the public or private space. Fliegel introduces medieval Christian iconography and its forms, meaning, function, context, and symbolism to twenty-first-century audiences.
