The subsequent essays each explore a different aspect of the constantly evolving work that figures of Judaism did for Christian art. In Chapter 4, Francisco Prado-Vilar discovers, in the inclusion and exclusion of Jews from the illuminations of a sumptuous thirteenth-century Castilian manuscript of poetry devoted to the Virgin Mary, a strategy of biopolitical resistance to the reduction of the Christian body to "bare life." And we might add—although he does not claim it—that in the process he has also discovered a strategy by which the illuminations themselves resist the reduction of the image to bare matter and bare mimesis. Felipe Pereda's "Through a Glass Darkly: Paths to Salvation in Spanish Painting at the Outset of the Inquisition" (Chapter 9) presents us with a case from the same kingdom—Castile—some two centuries later, at a time when the conversion of tens of thousands of Jews to Christianity had fractured consensus about the "Christianity" of art. Pereda provides an illuminating case study of how a Christian culture refashioned its converts into the "Jewish" cohorts it needed to defend Christian art. Stephen Campbell (Chapter 10) addresses a fear of "Judaism" provoked not by old Jews or new converts, but by new "realist" styles of painting. Focusing on a group of mid-sixteenth-century Brescian painters that included Moretto—who explored Old Testament themes like the sacrifice of Isaac in order to differentiate his "sacred naturalism" from rival forms of realism that he associated with carnality, mimesis, and excessive mediation—he offers us a powerful example of how readily pictorial realism was assimilable in Christian thought to "Jewish" emphasis on material form rather than spiritual truth. Finally, at the very end of our Medieval and Renaissance cluster, the illegible Hebrew script that Poussin's Jesus writes in the dust of "The Woman Caught in Adultery" becomes for Richard Neer (Chapter 11) the founding charter of Christian history painting. It is in these letters, writes Neer, that Poussin "think[s] history painting's grounding laws of space, time, and legibility, laws that Poussin states precisely in order to transcend them in his figural juxtapositions." Ephesians 2:8-9 Anachronisms aside, what St. Drogo and the “coffee boy” tell us quite clearly is how flexibly saints’ lives and iconography responded to the changing priorities of the communities around them. The same flexibility more recently has given us Saint Claire as the patron saint of television and Saint Isidore of Seville as patron of the internet. What new saintly protectors will the 21st century bring? There’s a question to ponder  over your next cup of joe.

The late fourth-century debate between St. Jerome and Nepotian over the decoration of churches provides a famous example. Nepotian invokes God's approval of the precious objects in Jerusalem's Temple to justify Christian decoration. Jerome attacks precisely that point in his counterargument: "And let no one allege against me the wealth of the temple of Judea, its tables, its lamps ... and the rest of its golden vessels." Those things of the Temple were, according to Jerome, "figures typifying things still in the future." But for Christians, who live in that future, "the Law is spiritual." If Christians "keep to the letter" in this, they must keep it in everything and adopt the Jewish rituals: "Rejecting the superstition of the Jews, we must also reject the gold; or approving the gold, we must approve the Jews as well. For we must either accept them with the gold or condemn them with it." St. Paul had condemned gentile Christians who adopted Israelite practices of circumcision as "Judaizers" (Gal. 2:14). St. Jerome tries to extend the condemnation to include decorators of churches.
