First published in 1940, this title presents four of the Gifford Lectures in natural theology given by Edwyn Bevan in 1933: `An Inquiry into Idolatry and Image-Worship in Ancient Paganism and Christianity'. Reference is made throughout all four lectures not only to the conventional disputes in Western Christianity, but also to the attitudes of Hebrew, Pagan, Patristic, Muslim and Eastern thinkers towards the role of symbols and symbolism in worship. In this way, a subject of perennial fascination and importance is placed in a broad historical context, and innovative lines of enquiry are developed with clarity and insight.

Holy Images offers an intriguing and easily accessible resource to students of theology, comparative religion, religious anthropology and philosophy.
