Reimagining a Young Jesus

(p.193) Epilogue
Christ Child

Stephen J. Davis

Yale University Press

The epilogue to the book relates the textual infancy traditions to the artistic representation of a young Jesus in medieval contexts ranging from manuscript illumination to paintings in churches, which also functioned as “sites of memory” for viewers. In both textual and visual settings, the Christ child was constantly reshaped and refigured for new eyes.
