This volume is a study of the portrait of Christ that was said to have been obtained directly from Jesus's face by Veronica, a medieval saint. The book recounts the history of the legend, and the place that it has occupied in Western and Byzantine art. The book attempts to draw symbolic parallels between the blood on Jesus's face by which the portrait was obtained, and the doctrine of incarnation and menstrual blood and procreation. It seeks to bring a feminist slant to the criticism of the iconography.
