Iconography : The study of those aspects of a work of art that pertain exclusively to its subject, and the ways in which that subject is represented. Iconography of the Trinity : • God the Father: elderly bearded man with blue cloak over reddish shirt. • The Son (Jesus Christ): shown semi-nude and crucified on a cross. • The Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost): appears in the form of a dove. Note : The holiness or sanctity of the figures is denoted by a halo, usually a gold disk.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
