Italian term or phrase: canoni raffigurativi
Questo rinnovato interesse si traduce in nuovi canoni raffigurativi, che prediligono l'immagine del Cristo triumphans, vittorioso sulla morte, rispetto al Cristo patiens, o sofferente.
Thanks.

English translation:This renewed interest brought about new trends of illustration that
Explanation:
preferred the image of a victorious Christ, triumphing over Death, compared to the resigned and suffering Christ.

I've taken a coupple of small liberties with the Italian to show you how ai would have translated the entire sentence, rather than just the phrase, which needs to be taken in context.

iconography (for Proz.com glossary)


Explanation:


Webster's definition

Iconography \I`co*nog"ra*phy\, n. [Gr. ? a sketch or description; e'ikw`n an image + ? to describe: cf. F. iconographie.] 1. The art or representation by pictures or images; the description or study of portraiture or representation, as of persons; as, the iconography of the ancients.
2. The study of representative art in general.

{Christian iconography}, the study of the representations in art of the Deity, the persons of the Trinity, angels, saints, virtues, vices, etc.









Iconography

Iconography (Greek, 'writing about images') is the study of subject matter in art. The iconographer employs knowledge of symbolic imagery to interpret works of art. The art historian Erwin Panofsky was a pioneer of iconographical studies and is now their leading exponent. In his own words, iconography is 'that branch of the history of art which concerns itself with the subject matter or meaning of works of art, as opposed to their form'. For example, a painting in which a woman is placed next to a spiked wheel is a representation of St Catherine, martyred on such a wheel and whose attribute it is. This is a simple example; usually the study of iconography is far more complicated, requiring an extensive knowledge of the related culture and intellectual climate before analysis can take place. A classic example is Panofsky's analysis of van Eyck's The Marriage of Arnolfini and his Wife (1434) in his book Early Netherlandish Painting.
