Abstract

The fresco of the ‘Anastasis’ (1310-1320) in the monastery of the Holy Saviour in the Fields, Constantinople, is one of the supreme works of Christian theological art (fig. 1). This supreme work, executed on the cusp of the City’s doom, illustrates the enduring vitality of the Greek patristic vision, with a power that it still exercises today. It is the expression of centuries of theological thought and tradition. This paper will explore the theological foundations of this tradition through the historical developments of the Anastasis imagery and present a compositional exegesis of the various image types.
