    This stupendous subject the author has treated with her now well-known grasp and power. Pestilence-stricken Ascalon; Jerusalem in its dire plight between warring factions within and the besieging force of Romans without; the emotional conflict between old Israelitish beliefs and the new Christianity; a sense of thronging multitudinous life, of Jew and Persian and Roman, Pagan and Christian, soldier and lord; the canvas is vast and the colors dramatic.

    In telling these stories I have been helped by an old book called The Lives of the Painters, by Giorgio Vasari, who was himself a painter. He took great delight in gathering together all the stories about these artists and writing them down with loving care, so that he shows us real living men, and not merely great names by which the famous pictures are known.
