Описание: The appreciation of early Christian and Byzantine Art as a sublime expression of religious thought and feeling is a comparatively modern phenomenon.
Byzantine art is both static and dynamic: static in the sense that once an image was established it was felt that no improvement was necessary; dynamic in the sense that there was
never one style and these styles or modes were constantly changing. The story is not only complex in its unravelling but ranges widely over various media: mosaic, wall painting and
painted panels, sculpture in marble and ivory, manuscript illumination, gold, silver, and precious stones, jewellery, silk and rich vestments.

Описание: How did Byzantine culture understand its own objects we now call "art"? This enlightening publication proposes that they saw and experienced clay pilgrim tokens, relief stamps, and icons of saints as dynamic and fully capable of affecting the world. The materials used and the sensory impressions they created were an integral part of the Byzantine attitude toward a given thing. Gold was considered a living material and tokens from locations associated with a saint's physical life could help pilgrims channel religious powers. This book attempts to overturn conventional art historical thought through a combination of material investigation, historical recovery, and hermeneutic clearing. Distinguished authors argue that categorizing these objects made for Medieval Greek Christians as art is incorrect, instead suggesting that they were rooted in a world with an animistic view of living things. Provocatively interweaving Byzantine material culture and art with analogues like Kongo nkondi figures and works by James Lee Byars, Donald Judd, and Yves Klein, this volume features the Menil Collection's superb holdings and fresh perspectives by a range of art historians.

Описание: Written by a religious historian, this is an introduction to early Christian thought. Focusing on major figures such as St Augustine and Gregory of Nyssa, as well
as a host of less well-known thinkers, Robert Wilken chronicles the emergence of a specifically Christian intellectual tradition. In chapters on topics including early Christian worship,
Christian poetry and the spiritual life, the Trinity, Christ, the Bible, and icons, Wilken shows that the energy and vitality of early Christianity arose from within the life of the
While early Christian thinkers drew on the philosophical and rhetorical traditions of the ancient world, it was the versatile vocabulary of the Bible that loosened their
tongues and minds and allowed them to construct the world anew, intellectually and spiritually. These thinkers were not seeking to invent a world of ideas, Wilken shows, but rather to
win the hearts of men and women and to change their lives. Early Christian thinkers set in place a foundation that has endured.
Their writings are an irreplaceable inheritance,
and Wilken shows that they can still be heard as living voices within contemporary culture.

Описание: An exploration of the representation of women in the Byzantine Empire. Featuring nearly 200 works of art, the volume illustrates how women in Byzantium were
represented in both material and literary culture and explores the continuities and changes in their lives throughout the era. The featured artworks, gathered from premier collections in
North America, date from the fourth through the 15th century and represent a full range of media and subject matter.
They include luxury objects such as ivories, silver
vessels, and precious jewelry; utilitarian objects such as toiletries and weaving tools; official objects such as coins and seals; and ritual objects such as icons and amulets. Organized in
two broad categories - women in the public sphere and women in the private sphere - these works of art and objects of everyday life illustrate the diverse roles of women in Byzantine
society and offer a view of their personal and public lives. Introductory essays by leading Byzantinists Ioli Kalavrezou and Angeliki Laiou offer further insights into these themes.
