she has just published an utterly brilliant piece on how the popular devotional image of Jesus - the long haired Aryan with the blue eyes - came to be. Even Jim West could learn a lot from this lady.
If you read nothing else on Jesus this month, no matter your view on his historicity or role in the great scheme of things, do read this piece, it's a real eye-opener. The subject is simply how we came to portray this seminal figure in a way that is clearly a massive distortion of reality.
This is the kind of writing that people who are qualified in the field should be producing, rather than the half-arsed weasel semi-apologetics and academic pedantry we are constantly subjected to.
Revenge of the dilettantes! More power to you Ms Tarico!
