Reading medieval images : the art historian and the object by Thelma K Thomas( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 493 libraries worldwide
"This unusual anthology focuses attention on art-historical practice. Each of the eighteen distinguished contributors--medievalists specializing in western European, Byzantine, and Islamic art--offers an interpretation of a single object, and in the process demonstrates how art historians go about describing, analyzing, and contextualizing works of art. The essays treat a broad range of artifacts in many media and together present a conspectus of current approaches to visual analysis, speaking to such crucial topics as medieval sign theory, visual rhetoric, replication, mimesis, and cultural interconnections within the medieval world. The volume will serve a wide audience, from specialists in the field to scholars in cognate disciplines to students interested in the craft of art history. Elizabeth L. Sears is Associate Professor of the History of Art, University of Michigan. Thelma K. Thomas is Associate Professor of the History of Art and Associate Curator of the Kelsey Museum, University of Michigan."--Publisher description
Late antique Egyptian funerary sculpture : images for this world and for the next by Thelma K Thomas( Book )
12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 417 libraries worldwide
"Focusing on funerary sculpture, one of the best-known categories of late antique Egyptian art, Thelma K. Thomas demonstrates how skilled artisans created a varied repertory of works for a diverse body of commissioners. Some of these sculptures were made for grand monumental tombs and commissioned by an urban, land-owning class with strong Hellenistic roots; others were made for smaller and less imposing monuments and commissioned by distinctly different clienteles from monasteries and towns, as well as by different socio-economic classes within the cities."

The glory of Byzantium : art and culture of the Middle Byzantine era, A.D. 843-1261 by Helen C Evans( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
This volume focuses on the Second Golden Age--the critically important medieval era--of the Byzantine Empire, presenting insights into the art and culture of the Middle Byzantine era (843-1261) through the discussion of a remarkable number of works of the highest artistic and cultural standards. The book explores the role of the richly multiethnic empire during the centuries in which it influenced, converted, gained, and lost territories as diverse as Kievan Rus', Bulgaria, Georgia, Armenia, Syria, the Holy Land, Egypt, Cyprus, Sicily, South Italy, and the Veneto, while at the same time it set a standard of artistic excellence for Christian kingdoms in the Latin West and for Islamic states in the Near East. Examining more than 350 objects from 119 collections in 24 countries, the reader is presented with the breadth of the Byzantine Empire's art and culture during these 4 centuries. -- Metropolitan Museum of Art website

De la fibre à l'étoffe : archéologie, production et usages des textiles de Nubie et du Soudan anciens à l'époque méroïtique by Elsa Halstad( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Mon sujet de thèse vise à étudier tous les aspects de la production textile au Soudan à l'époque méroïtique (300 avant J.-C. - 400 après J.-C.). En tant que production artisanale, les tissus sont les fruits de très nombreuses étapes de fabrication, depuis la culture de la fibre à sa transformation en fils, et jusqu'au tissage. Les textiles sont également un des piliers de la culture matérielle des sociétés antiques. Ils y remplissaient des fonctions très variées, liées à l'habillement ou au mobilier, dans tous les contextes, aussi bien urbains, cultuels, que funéraires. D'autres questions devront être abordées, comme celle du commerce avec le monde romain, ou celle de la place de la production textile soudanaise dans les espaces plus larges de la vallée du Nil ou du monde méditerranéen. Ma thèse aura pour objectif de documenter tous ces thèmes, touchants différents domaines comme l'archéobotanie, les études textiles, les analyses iconographiques, l'archéologie et l'histoire.Mon travail consistera à rassembler et analyser les outils, les tissus et les reliefs montrant des costumes, chaque groupe documentaire éclairant un ou plusieurs aspects de la production textile. Il s'agira aussi d'observer les contextes archéologiques afin de déterminer les différentes modalités de production et d'utilisation des tissus. Une telle étude, se basant sur un riche corpus d'objets souvent inédits, permettra d'illustrer un domaine peu connu de la culture matérielle et économique du Soudan méroïtique
