interviewer is John Handley, from the Graduate Theological Union. An article by Brenda Ihssen examines the role of the Byzantine Emperor Leo IV and the battle between the iconoclasts and iconodules regarding the use of the painted icon within the Byzantine Church. There are two essays that treat twenty-first century artists: Gary Phillips and Danna Fewell provide us with an excellent introduction to the provocative and powerful work of the Jewish artists Samuel Bak, whose art treats the Holocaust and its appropriation in our time. Joanne Braxton offers us an article of original research on the African American visionary and self-taught artist Anderson Johnson, whom she knew and worked with before his death. We publish two poems by Pamela S. Wynn, and round out the issue with Deborah Sokolove's review of Daniel A. Siedell's, God in the Gallery. We hope that you will find food for both your mind and your soul in this feast of writings.
