Description: The second edition of The Sexuality of Christ in Renaissance Art and in Modern Oblivion -- doubled in size by the addition of a "Retrospect" -- expands the now classic original text in three directions. It brings in a host of confirming images; deepens the theological argument; and answers skeptical or scandalized critics who decried the book at its first publication. In its polemical parts, the book wrestles large issues, such as the validity of interpretations that come without supporting texts, or the modern plea that the maleness of Christ be tempered into androgyny. Along the way, the topics engaged range from Christ's human nature to Dr. Strangelove, from St. Augustine's dismal assessment of babyhood to the aesthetics of the U.S. Post Office. Written with verve and reverence, with theological sophistication and wit, this landmark book comes as a revelation.
