Transfiguration offers discussions of the relationship between art forms and Christianity in the European tradition from the early Church until today. The journal provides a much-needed venue for a broader theological forum that extends beyond the traditional boundaries of religious art scholarship. Looking beyond the contexts in which religious art works are typically situated, it aims to engage this art as a mode of expression that exists in the space between religious practice and aesthetic display. The present issue includes chapters on Luther’s reflection on the life of a Christian, the motif of imitatio Christi, the relationship between image and body, Jesus as a symbolist, and Nietzsche’s The Antichrist.
