Christianity in Asia explores the spread of the religion across Asia, and the art it inspired. This fully illustrated catalogue is aimed at a general audience, and accompanies the first exhibition exclusively dedicated to this topic. The book shows how local artists interpreted well-established Christian iconography, with new materials, and in often surprising ways. Essays explore earliest Christian art in Central Asia, India, and China; interest in Christian art at the Islamic courts; and works associated with missionary activities in China, South and Southeast Asia, and Japan.
