“My Jesus was a real person who did not perform miracles and was not resurrected after death. He was a political revolutionary who, in the face of circumstances that appeared hopeless, succeeded revolutionizing the spirit.” William E. Jones

The book confronts two conflicting questions, how is it possible to make an image of revolution, and, how is it possible to make a religious image? Through the diverse range of objects chosen and his text Jones challenges our perception of Christ, posits him as a revolutionary, examines the parallels between revolution and religion and the role of religious imagery in art. Including Renaissance and Baroque prints and drawings, documentary photographs, modern Latin American art, and rare books. The materials were drawn from the collection of the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts at the Hammer Museum and from the Charles E. Young Research Library Department of Special Collections.
