''In this rich and insightful study, Jeffrey Hamburger creates an entirely new understanding of the images and the persona of John, the divinized Evangelist, during the Middle Ages. In most fascinating ways, he discovers the significance of these images and of vision in Christian experience, as well as the extraordinary function images had for theological thought itself and for the medieval concept of divinization of man...A beautiful and masterful book.'' - Niklaus Largier, University of California, Berkeley.
