Abstract:

Outlines the history of Christian art from its beginning through the first six centuries of its development. It actually began with drawings on tombstones and in burial vaults. A study of such drawings clearly shows the gradual change in attitude brought about by Christianity: the first drawings portrayed everyday scenes in life but, as Christian teachings spread, the art began to depict man's thoughts of death and resurrection. The author presents a detailed discussion of the basilica, the martyrium, the early images of Christ, and the logos on the cross. He compares the various forms of early Christian architecture, and outlines the changing art of the period of migrations. A discussion of Carolingian art rounds out this definitive work.
