This beautiful book, adorned throughout with gold ink, brings the pieces of the puzzle together to create a moving portrait of this remarkable woman from her childhood to the Annunciation and the Nativity, and then to her role as mother full of joy and loss, and to her own death and assumption into heaven.Her life story is unveiled in a rich collection of the words and images that have defined her throughout the history of Christianity. Constructing a passionate biography of Mary and a cativating account of the time in which she lived, this book also offers insight into the symbolic dimension of this key figure and the universal nature of her story.

Publishers Description
The Virgin Mary is one of the most revered women in the history of the world, and yet amazingly, there is relatively little known about the details of her life. This beautiful book, adorned throughout with gold ink, retraces her steps throughout the biblical narrative. Mary comes alive to the reader through striking artistic representations that range from the origins of Western art to the iconography of the twentieth century. From Titian, Raphael, and Fra Angelico to Van Eyck, Albrecht Durer, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the most famous as well as lesser-known representations of Mary are brought together with sculptures, frescoes, and stone statues that recreate scenes from her life. Biblical and literary references to the Virgin Mother have been woven into the author's account of the life of Mary. Her history is unveiled in a rich collection of the words and images that have defined her throughout the centuries of Christianity. Constructing a passionate biography of Mary and a captivating portrait of the time in which she lived, this book also offers insight into the symbolic dimension of this key figure and the universal nature of her history. This exquisitely produced book is a celebration of Mary; it is a gift to commemorate the Christmas season with reverence, pay homage to motherhood, and provide hours of inspirational reflection.

Reviews - What do customers think about Salve Regina: The Story of Mary?

Elegant, beautiful, prayerful  Jan 23, 2008
Salve Regina is quite simply a most beautiful tribute to Mary, the Mother of God. The pictures are extraordinary and the text brings to life the sublimity of Mary. As the subject matter for the many artists represented in this stunning collection, Mary's presence seems to lift our human art form to a heavenly height. The book becomes a prayer as page by page we are presented with the humanity, the holiness, the purity and radiance of this woman, our Mother Mary, brought to life throught the creative genius and inspirations of the artist's work. It is a treasure.

Beautiful Story of Mary, Salve Regina  Jan 9, 2007

Sumptuous and sacred  Nov 17, 2006
Duquesne's collection of world-renowned masterpieces depicting the life stages of the Blessed Virgin Mary and accompanied by his well-crafted essay is a delight to the eye as well as the theological mind. He begins with the story of her parents, Sts. Joachim and Anne, and chronicles Mary's life through her death, Assumption into heaven, and, finally, her magesterial role in Christianity.

The paintings by famed painters such as Caravaggio, Raphael, and Michelangelo, are neatly paired with works of lesser-known artists, such as Pierre Prud'hon, Simone Martini, and Jan Provost (at least, the latter three were unknown to me until I beheld this tome). Duquesne's script is theologically sound and full of interesting Marian facts, delivered in a reverential but not pietistic tone. I enjoyed this book tremendously.
