This careful analysis of a millennium of Christian art outlines the path by which Christians reinterpreted the Hebrew Scriptures to prove they foretold the ascendancy of Christianity. Starting with a solid introduction to the origins of Christianity and the beginnings of Christian art in the catacombs of Rome, Claman skillfully demonstrates the development of the anti-Jewish message of Christian art. The study culminates with analyses of the majestic cathedral at Chartres, the public burning of the Talmud in Paris in 1248, and the expulsion of the Jews from France and England. Includes b&w images and color plates.

Although there are many studies of America’s most famous literary figure, this thorough investigation provides not only new information on Twain’s religion, but also a different approach from anything published before. Mostly chronological, the book makes extensive use of Twain’s works and, often neglected in such studies on Twain, the Bible, his most important literary source.
