This book is a study of the theology of the Trinity as expressed in the literature and art of the late Anglo-Saxon period. It examines the meaning of the representations of the Trinity in tenth- and eleventh-century English manuscripts and their relationship both to Anglo-Saxon theology and to earlier debates about the legitimacy of representations of the divine. The book's unifying theme is that of the image. It will be of interest to art historians, theologians and literary scholars alike.

Editorial Reviews

"Raw makes accessible some problems of the fundamentally theological surviving visual arts of late Anglo-Saxon England, placing them against selected Old English literary...Those elements, along with the translations of Latin citations into English, helpful footnotes, and Raw's proficient summaries of centuries of Christian thought, mark her book as an immensely serviceable introduction to tough interperatative problems in the Anglo-Saxon period."
