please can you help me with these two questions. i have tried looking it up on google, but cant get the exact answer.
1. During what period did worshipping of the Virgin Mary begin to grow steadily?
c. Early medieval
2. What is the purpose of early Christian art, what did the art teach?
thank you very much
For the first answer, I believe it was the early medieval times.
Your text probably is the best source for these answers. However, this article gives a pretty complete history of the veneration of the Virgin Mary. It looks like Early Medieval may be the best answer to your rather vague question.
Since most people were illiterate, Christian art was intended to teach them about their religion.
Thank you so much!
You're very welcome. :-)
