Michel Ciry, The Risen Christ. "The twentieth century has seen a de-mythologizing of Christian beliefs. Jesus' humanity has been emphasized at the expense of his divinity. The idea of the 'historical Christ' has taken a firm hold of the modern mind, at the expense of Jesus as God. Modern 'rational' thinking means that everything has to be 'provable fact.' Hence, Ciry paints a 20th century Risen Christ who looks very like Dan, the nice man in the local Deli."
