Description

Matthew Milliner argues that art as theology is not necessarily good news, particularly when the visual tradition of God the Father is univocal. Milliner traces factors that have contributed to an 'iconographical catastrophe' and offers promising depictions of God the Father from the evangelical visual tradition.
