    One thought on “Early Medieval Art”

    1. c2002. This was not quite what I was expecting - certainly far more academic than I was looking for. The illustrations were also not what I was particularly looking for. However in saying that, it contained some very interesting nuggets of information. I, for one did not realise that early Christianity first placed a ban on any illustrations containing an image of Christ and this was only overturned a couple of hundred years after the CE started. I love the idea of a single lost sheep representi [...]

    2. A great introduction to late antiquity early Middle Ages art and history. Well written and although it is broken down by subject it is still relatively chronological and very comparative. Elements of very early Christian art were fascinating as was the later intersection of Christianity and late roman manuscripts that gave us the gift of insular manuscripts. Does not delve deeply in any one area but specific enough to give a nice overview of the art in this period. Although it covers nearly a th [...]

    3. An interesting, accessible book, but as I was using it for research and revision I did notice quite a few errors in the index, either giving page numbers a few pages off from where something was mentioned, or even omitting some pages with information about an indexed subject just a little annoying!

    4. It was a good book that went well with the early medieval art course I am taking at school. The author also gives a bit of the historical context in which the art was created to help further my understanding of the material.
