Information About: Index of Christian Art

Subjects: Medieval art

Description: The Index records works of art produced without geographical limitations from early apostolic times (before A.D. 700.)up to A.D. 1550 (extended in the case of the Morgan and Princeton Library projects to include manuscript holdings up to the middle of the sixteenth century). There has been a particular emphasis and focus on art of the western world. This has been corrected over the last few years with the addition of significant holdings from Coptic Egypt, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Syria, Armenia, and the Near East. Seventeen different media are represented in the archive, and these include manuscripts, metalwork, sculpture, painting, glass, and so forth.

The Internet database presently contains nearly 80,000 work of art records which are accompanied by over one-hundred thousand images in color and black and white. Many of these images have never before been digitized and are published here for the first time.
