Description: Jesus Christ is arguably the most famous man who ever lived. His image adorns countless churches, icons, and paintings. He is the subject of millions of statues, sculptures, devotional objects and works of art. Everyone can conjure an image of Jesus: usually as a handsome, white man with flowing locks and pristine linen robes.

But what did Jesus really look like? Is our popular image of Jesus overly westernized and untrue to historical reality?

This question continues to fascinate. Christian Origins scholar Joan E. Taylor surveys the historical evidence, and the prevalent image of Jesus in art and culture, to suggest an entirely different vision of this most famous of men.

"in this beautifully illustrated volume, Joan Taylor takes readers on a fascinating journey all the way back through medieval art and relics, catacomb paintings and basilica frescoes to the historical Jesus himself. With wide-ranging erudition and impeccable scholarly judgement, Taylor uncovers both his physical appearance and the clothing he most likely wore. Prepare to have your mental image of Jesus changed forever!"
