Art historian Elizabeth Lev joins the show to discuss her new book, The Silent Knight: A History of St. Joseph as Depicted in Art.

The book offers not only a history of sixteen centuries of art featuring St. Joseph, but also an account of the development of devotion to St. Joseph over the past two thousand years—from the old man sitting overlooked in the corner of early Nativity scenes to the glorious Patron of the Univeral Church.
