‘There are some real treasures to be found in this volume on the general theme of the beauty of God’s presence’ , Angela Tilby, Journal of Theological Studies (2015).

'These papers are filled not only with new insights; they present aspects of the past worth pondering … Other aspects of this collection will strike other general readers, and it presents and excellent example of the development of Irish academic research', Peter Costello, Irish Catholic (August 2014).

‘Not the least of the merits of these essays is that they show how patristic concerns overflowed into Christian art … Among the most intriguing contributions to this collection is Janet Rutherford’s discussion of the Alexandrine tradition, with particular reference to prayer and sacrament’, Adrian Empey, Search (Summer 2015).
