The tragic climax to the Gospel stories, the Crucifixion of Christ is the pivotal event of Christianity. In theological terms, it is God's sacrifice of Himself to redeem mankind; in human terms, it is the ultimate tragedy and a strikingly evocative symbol of suffering and human sacrifice. As Christianity's supreme image, the Crucifixion has been endlessly represented by artists throughout the centuries. This volume presents a chronological sequence of over 100 of the finest Crucifixion images produced by a selection of the greatest artists in the Christian tradition, ranging from the earliest catacomb art to the late twentieth century. The subject is always the same, the means of representing it always different in mood and medium, style and scale. Perusing this powerful volume, the reader is taken on a prolonged meditation, focusing on the universal themes of suffering, sacrifice and redemption, and reflecting on the breathtaking power of art to transcend its grim subject matter and to create out of it works of compelling beauty.

This is a book with pictures of the cross - different pictures from different view of Christ on the cross - Beautiful pictures - it will increase your felling of the One who suffered and died such a death - the death by Crucifixion - one of the most horrible forms of death. I recommend it.

More than pleased with the quality of the book. Color photography outstanding. Only wish the page size was a bit larger.

This collection has four books (Annunciation, Last Supper, Crucifixion, Descent) which will be a treasure to all those who love great art, and especially those attracted to religious art. Each book is beautifully bound in its own brilliant metallic color: gold, silver, bronze and copper. The unique size and color of the books make this set aesthetically pleasing. It is a wonderful collection to display on any shelf. The prints, more than 100 in each book, are of superb quality. Phaidon, the publisher, is recognized for excellence and elegance in all their printing. There is scant text; each book has a New Testament scriptural preface, then a brief caption accompanies each image.
As the titles project, a central event in Christ's life is elucidated by the world's best artistic masters; each brings their own commentary to the selected Christological theme. Most enjoyable, and educational, is the progression through time, starting with early art pieces and finishing with contemporary masters. From beginning to end, each book is a wonderful journey through time.
Stunning. macabre, painful and finally humbling were some of the feelings I experienced as I journeyed with the masters through the 120 plates that depicted the crucifixion of Christ. Unlike "Annunciation" and "Last Supper", two other books in this Phaidon set, where you can see the changes in the artist interpretation of the event through the ages, the image of the painful and gruesome death of Christ in "Crucifixion" changes little over the 1600 years covered here. The inhumanity of the crucifixion travels vividly through the ages; from the earliest picture, painted by the monk Rabbula in Mesopotamia (586 AD) to Lovis Corinth's (1907) and Stanley Spenser's (1958) disturbing images. You can not come away from viewing this book without realizing the pain and suffering that occurred on the cross. This is a book I will return to as a devotional, especially during Lent, to rethink the cost of redemption. Excellent. Highly Recommended.

This is an outstanding collection out beautiful art about the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is rewarding just to look at it and realize all the effort by all the artist over the centuries to create a vision of the actual scene.
