THE SILENT KNIGHT

Product Description
The Silent Knight
A History of St. Joseph as Depicted in Art

By Elizabeth Lev

In this glorious full-color book, art historian Elizabeth Lev showcases St. Joseph's multifaceted qualities, elucidated by exceptional saints and represented by art's most creative geniuses. Describing St. Joseph as the "extraordinary man who embodies the power of silence and yet still speaks to the hearts of all who turn to him," Lev juxtaposes his contemplative depictions with representations of his active life, affirming that he is not only a dreamer but a "man of action."
Sure to become a cultural talking point, this lavishly illustrated book features captivating images of St. Joseph by Raphael, Michelangelo, Murillo, Giotto, Caravaggio, El Greco, and more. Let Lev take you on a journey to gaze upon the art of St. Joseph from all over the world, including fifth-century Rome, where St. Joseph was first depicted in mosaics in the Basilica of St. Mary Major.
In the past, St. Joseph came to the aid of a Church mired in corruption. Lev reflects, "St. Joseph returned in the Age of Chivalry, riding in like a shining, albeit silent, knight, ready to serve and to defend the Church, his damsel in distress." St. Joseph stands no less ready to serve the faithful today, as we navigate the difficult shoals of the modern era.
This book illustrates the many faces of St. Joseph and his miraculous intercessions that brought unity in times of division. "The Old Testament Joseph distributed bread in times of famine, and the New Testament Joseph brings to Egypt Jesus, who is, in the words of Pope Leo, 'the Bread of Life and the Food of reason that came down from heaven,'" Lev explains.
For years, people have contemplated artistic depictions of St. Joseph in their homes and consecrated themselves to him. St. Josemaria Escriva exhorted the faithful to "throw yourself into the strong arms of the father." Discover how St. Joseph is our most powerful intercessor, along with the Blessed Mother. Go to St. Joseph. Behold and listen to him!
