Summary:
This text is at the interface between visual studies and biblical studies, and is the only monograph to date on St Paul's visual piety. Heath argues that biblical scholarship has downplayed this-worldly visuality in Christian culture, and that the exegesis of Paul is both a partial cause and a symptom of this 'disciplinary blind-spot'.
