Item description for Sister Wendy's Meditations on the Mysteries of Our Faith by Wendy Beckett...

Overview
This work brings together two unlikely but significant "celebrities" born centuries and continents apart yet united in a love of the mysteries of our faith, their impact on humanity and, perhaps most importantly, the way these realities are communicated in the art of painting. Sister Wendy Beckett was born in South Africa in 1930. Duccio de Buoninsegna (1255-1319) spent most of his life in the Tuscan city of Siena. The complementarity of text and image presented on these pages brings into focus the almost paradoxical juxtaposition of the myteries of our faith: darkness and light, falsity and truth, dying and rising, Lent and Easter. These were all very vivid and concrete dimensions of daily life in the Middle Ages.

Publishers Description
This work brings together two unlikely but significant celebrities born centuries and continent apart yet united in a love of the mysteries of our faith, their impact on humanity and, perhaps, most importantly, the way these realities are communicated in the art of painting. Sister Wendy Beckett (c 1930 - ) and Duccio de Buoninsegna (c 1255-1319) spent most of his life in the Tuscan city of Siena. He is considered by many today to be the first of the great names in Italian painting. Duccio's masterpiece, The Maesta completed in 1311, a large altarpiece. Sr. Wendy uses fourteen episodes in the history of our salvation in Christ from the reverse side of this huge panel as the basis of meditation in this book.
