One of the most highly regarded works of intellectual history of the past decade, Jesus Through the Centuries is an original and compelling study of the impact of Jesus on cultural, political, social, and economic history. Noted historian and theologian Jaroslav Pelikan reveals how the image of Jesus created by each successive epoch—from rabbi in the first century to liberator in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries—is a key to understanding the temper and values of that age.

Jaroslav Pelikan was a scholar in the history of Christianity and medieval intellectual history. He was Sterling Professor of History Emeritus at Yale University and author of more than thirty books, including The Christian Tradition, widely acknowledged as the foremost history of its kind, and Mary Through the Centuries, published by Yale University Press.
