DOI: 10.1558/equinox.37482


Josiah, like anther characters in the biblical texts, is never described. This chapter presents the usual pictorial presentations made of Josiah in western art. A series of works of serial scenes depicting Josiah are the focus of this chapter. Counter-Reformation graphics are followed by modern comic book presentations and the adaptations to the biblical figure that these works entail.
