Abstract There have been innumerable paintings and other artistic representations of Salome and the Baptist. Various modern responses to the biblical story can highlight the way in which franker mores unearth popular or populist construals of the narrative. They also chart the way in which the biblical narrative, which I shall argue is striking for its lacunae, has positively encouraged elaborations. Ultimately, however, that has had the effect of displacing the biblical narrative itself. The narrative’s lacunae stimulated ‘infill’ from its adapters—yet this has reached a point where the narrative has been displaced by a faux distortion, depending on a monotone thematics, which dominates the general reception of the story.
