Furniture, Objects, Linen, Clothing and Musical Instruments of the Roman Catholic Faith. As a record of Catholic religious objects, Thesaurus is at once theology and art history, superbly presented in finest detail. The book is divided into 5 chapters covering devotional objects, liturgical vestments, furniture, sacred vessels, and much more. Examples include an ancient key that was used to lock a tabernacle or an altar of repose; a 14th century bust containing relics of the person it represented; a sacred vessel in the shape of a dove that was used to hold consecrated hosts; and a papal cloak made of gold cloth. The more than 600 objects featured are accompanied by comprehensive captions that explain the origin of each object, its materials and purpose. This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in art, history, theology, and religion. 22 x 27,5 cm, 408 S., 650 teils farb. Abb., Ln. N° de ref. de la librería 194360
