Although the majority of people assume that biblical scene artwork is essentially Christian art, that's actually not entirely correct. Most of the medieval masterpieces were actually commissioned by the Catholic Church for decoration and teaching purposes solely within the church.
Despite this, most Christian's still adopt this art category for their purposes because of the familiar biblical stories and faith-affirming messages embodied in the majority of imagery that make up this art style's content. A large portion of biblical scene art has content from various stories of the Bible, such as Daniel in the lion's den, Noah's ark, the Garden of Eden, and the Last Supper, in addition to biblical figures like angels. However, biblical scene art doesn't necessarily have to be literal and there is a lot of art in this category that addresses themes of faith, hope, overcoming trials, blessings and prayer as well as contemporary works that quote actual verses from various biblical texts.
