Wales and Its Biblical Landscapes
Keywords:Bible, Wales, Lanscape, Visual, Culture, Art, Nonconformist
This paper takes its starting point from the view that there is a close link between the vernacular Bible and Welsh cultural identity. It continues the reflections provoked by the project Imaging the Bible in Wales, taking as its theme the concept of landscaping. The body of the paper examines models of landscaping in Welsh religious art: Wales as Holy land; rural landscapes, industrial landscapes, seascapes. The aim is to identify the frame for a fuller and deeper investigation of Bible-scapes and Wales and thus to demonstrate the value of artistic representation for biblical exegesis.
