Between 1995 and 1998 Rainer produced these remarkable overpaintings. The spectrum of the Bible originals chosen by the artist ranges from the 10th-century illustrated manuscripts to the art of the 19th century. Among others works by Giotto, Botticelli, Giovanni Bellini or William Blake serve Rainer for his various overpaintings. In this volume all 160 works of the Bible cycle are reproduced in large-format plates. Each overpainting is accompanied by texts from the Authorized Version of the Bible from 1611 as well as informative art-historical data and detailed commentaries on the reworkings. The essays in the field address not only the art-historical aspects of these works but also the theological background to Rainer's overpaintings.
