Christian literature

Folio 4v from ac Coptic Old Testament Fragment, showing Lot and his daughters. Scanned from Crinelli, Lorenzo. Treasures from Italy’s Great Libraries. New York, The Vendome Press, 1997Christian literature is writing that deals with Christian themes and incorporates the Christian worldview. This constitutes a huge body of extremely varied writing.


While falling within the strict definition of literature, The Bible is not generally considered literature.

However the Bible has been treated and appreciated as literature; the King James Version in particular has long been considered a masterpiece of English prose, whatever may be thought of its religious significance. Several retellings of the Bible, or parts of the Bible, have also been made with the aim of emphasising its literary qualities.
