The Key to the Brescia Casket: Typology and the Early Christian Imagination


by: Catherine Brown Tkacz
he elusive rationale for the Brescia Casket, an ivory reliquary carved in northern Italy ca. 390, has long tantalized scholars. In The Key to the Brescia Casket, Dr. Catherine Brown Tkacz reveals that the secret to its meaning lies in exegetical typology—the interpretation of Old Testament people and events as prefiguring the Messiah. Typology, Tkacz argues, underlies the sophisticated program of the ivory box, which features an unusually full depiction of the Passion.

Among the fifty-nine carvings on the Brescia Casket, most of them depicting biblical events, are five scenes of the Passion, more than any other monument prior to this time period.

Byzantium and Islam: Age of Transition


This groundbreaking volume explores the epochal transformations and unexpected continuities in the Byzantine Empire from the seventh to the ninth century. As the period opened, the Empire's southern provinces—the vibrant, diverse areas of North Africa and the eastern Mediterranean—were at the crossroads of trade routes reaching from Spain to China. These regions experienced historic upheavals when their Christian and Jewish communities encountered the emerging Islamic world, and by the ninth century, an unprecedented cross-fertilization of cultures had taken place.

Rome


by: Richard Krautheimer

In this classic study, surveying the city's life from Christian Antiquity through the Middle Ages, Richard Krautheimer focuses on monuments of art and architecture as they reflect the historical events, the ideological currents, and the meaning Rome held for its contemporaries. Lavishly illustrated, this book tells an intriguing story in which the heritage of antiquity intertwines with the living presence of Christianity. Written by one of the great art historians of our time, it offers a profile of the Eternal City unlike any drawn in the past or likely to be drawn in the future.

Die Wiener Genesis im Rahmen der antiken Buchmalerei: Ikonographie, Darstellung, Illustrationsverfahren und Aussageintention


by: Barbara Zimmermann
Die 48 Miniaturen der sog. Wiener Genesis (Cod. Vind. theol. gr. 31), einer prachtvollen, illustrierten Purpurhandschrift des 6. Jhs. n. Chr., wurden jungst noch als Beleg gewertet fur die Existenz von illustrierten Bibelhandschriften in judisch-hellenistischen Kreisen; eine solche Buchrolle wurde auch als Archetyp fur den Miniaturenzyklus der Wiener Genesis angenommen.Diese Theorie beruht auf den Forschungen von Kurt Weitzmann (und in Folge der 'Weitzmannschen Schule'), der - basierend auf der Methode des 'picture-critiscm' - eine bluhende Buchmalerei schon in hellenistischer Zeit postulierte, auf welche nahezu alle antiken narrativen Zyklen zuruckgingen.
