I wish to acknowledge the work of Gordon Matties (first entry, below), from which I have in part drawn in gathering the information for this page.

    "This site has been set up to collect into one place resources for studying the historical Jesus through modern cinematic presentations of Jesus' life and teachings. However, it has also developed into repository for bibliography and web links on the intersection of religion/theology and film in general."
