Reading medieval images : the art historian and the object by Thelma K Thomas( Book )
11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 486 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 413 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." "Thomas balances keen analysis of the surviving sculptures with close attention to primary written sources and archaeological evidence. The approach yields original interpretations of regional implications for attribution groups, and provocatively atmospheric reconstructions of the works as they would have appeared in their original settings."--Jacket

Romanesque Casket Reliquaries: Forms, Meanings, and Development by Melanie Hanan( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Chapter 3 studies eleventh-century casket reliquaries from San Isidoro in Leon, Spain, made for Fernando I and Sancha. It proposes that the Beatitudes and Pelagius-John the Baptist caskets are Heavenly Jerusalem reliquaries and that they were used at church or altar consecration ceremonies and during various monastic Offices and the Easter season. It argues that the Isidore casket reliquary with its Genesis and laical scenes was used to facilitate the penitence of the royal couple as well as to assist in confirming their legitimacy as rulers, not to develop a public cult or establish San Isidoro as a place of pilgrimage
