Description: Five outstanding medievalists challenge conventional wisdom on the beginnings of biblical illustration. They present a convincing argument that illustrated and decorated bibles were shaped by ad hoc decisions that resulted in a creative variety of approaches. In his introduction, Williams (professor emeritus of art history, U. of Pittsburgh) describes the essays as eliminating the archetypal filter in viewing the history of early bible illustrations, thus reorienting manuscript studies away from the search for archetypes and toward the type of studies encouraged by buildings and other artistic enterprises endowed with richer contextual evidence. Generously illustrated in color and b&w.
