Architecture And Elite Identity In Late Antique Rome: Appropriating The Past At Sant'andrea Catabarbara, Gregor Kalas

Gregor A. Kalas

The conversion of the fourth-century basilica of Junius Bassus, a secular structure on an aristocratic estate, into the church of Sant’Andrea Catabarbara in Rome during the 470s invites a discussion of how architectural adaptation contributed to the identity of its restorer, Valila.

Negotiating The Boundary Between Monastic Seclusion And Apostolic Mission In The Bishopric Of Chur Around The Year 800, Jenny Ataoguz Apr 2011

Negotiating The Boundary Between Monastic Seclusion And Apostolic Mission In The Bishopric Of Chur Around The Year 800, Jenny Ataoguz

Jenny Kirsten Ataoguz

By virtue of their lifestyle and learning, early medieval monks were particularly well-suited to serve a pastoral role, yet at the turn of the ninth century, Carolingian efforts at reform reveal a discomfort with monastic engagement with the secular world through the establishment of clerical precedence in matters concerning the laity. But just as reform characterized Carolingian monasticism, so too did diversity, and in a region immediately adjacent to the Bishopric of Chur we have direct evidence of monks playing a pastoral role.

In the Bishopric of Chur itself, the evidence may be less direct, but it is mounting. The ...


Altering The Tradition: The Traditio Legis At The Monastery Of Saint John, Jenny Ataoguz Mar 2011

Altering The Tradition: The Traditio Legis At The Monastery Of Saint John, Jenny Ataoguz

Jenny Kirsten Ataoguz

The main church of the Monastery of Saint John in Müstair, Switzerland preserves on its walls an extensive program of wall painting dating to around the year 800. The half-dome of one of its three apses presents a Traditio legis, a theme that had originated in Rome in the fourth century. Although the composition was firm during the first centuries of Christian art, with Paul on Christ’s right side and Peter on his left, early medieval versions more often reverse their placement. The basis for the privileging of Paul – his reception of the law of the spirit in counterpoint ...


Das Sakramentar Von Beauvais: Vollständige Faksimile-Ausgabe Der Handschrift Ms. Ludwig V 1 Aus Dem J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 2010

Das Sakramentar Von Beauvais: Vollständige Faksimile-Ausgabe Der Handschrift Ms. Ludwig V 1 Aus Dem J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A facsimile of a ten-leaf fragment of an illuminated sacramentary. The commentary includes a close examination of the object itself (physical properties, text, writing, and painting), considers the fragment's place in the oeuvre of the main scribe, and evaluates the artistic comparanda. A new understanding—anticipated in the work of Guy Lanoë—of the probable circumstances of the manuscript's creation is offered: that the sacramentary was made almost certainly at the behest of Roger, bishop of Beauvais from 998 to 1016, for his cathedral church of Saint Peter.

Pembroke College 302: Abbreviated Gospel Book Or Gospel Lectionary?, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 2009

Pembroke College 302: Abbreviated Gospel Book Or Gospel Lectionary?, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A consideration of the character of the text of Cambridge, Pembroke College, MS 302, a series of excerpts from the four canonical Gospels in (with one exception) biblical order preceded by an incomplete set of canon tables, a manuscript produced in England in the mid-11th century. Concludes that it was probably created as a private devotional book for a high-ranking Benedictine monk, a prayer book intended to resemble a Gospel book and to present a full account of the life of Christ.

Visual Preaching In The Early Middle Ages: The Healing Arts At The Carolingian Monastery Of St. John In Müstair, Switzerland, Jenny Ataoguz Jan 2008

Visual Preaching In The Early Middle Ages: The Healing Arts At The Carolingian Monastery Of St. John In Müstair, Switzerland, Jenny Ataoguz

Jenny Kirsten Ataoguz

Around the year 800, the church of the monastery of John the Baptist in Müstair, Switzerland, received an extensive painted decoration. The resulting cycle is characterized by unprecedented visibility and clarity, which may most easily be explained by the expectation of lay beholders alongside monastic, which in turn suggests that monastic vocation at Müstair included a pastoral component.

A local sacramentary and a local preaching handbook, both intended for monastic usage and both written at exactly the moment as the decoration of the church, were two tools that the monks at Müstair could have had at their disposal as they ...

Centum Homines: The Prototype Of The Alexander Mosaic And The Military Museum In The Hellenistic World, Peter Nulton Feb 2007

Centum Homines: The Prototype Of The Alexander Mosaic And The Military Museum In The Hellenistic World, Peter Nulton

Peter E. Nulton Ph.D.

Although it is generally accepted that the Alexander Mosaic copies a painting of the 4th Century BCE, the attribution of this prototype has never been settled. Numerous attempts have been made to associate it with painters recorded in Pliny's Natural History, notably Philoxenos of Eretria, and Alexander's court painter, Apelles.

If the painting were the work of any artist whose name survives, as strong a case can be made for Aristeides of Thebes as for Apelles or Philoxenos. Since Pliny's comment that Aristeides painted a battle against the Persians follows his treatment of the works of Apelles ...


Nature, Culture And The Origins Of Greek Comedy. A Study Of Animal Choruses, Kenneth Rothwell Dec 2006

Nature, Culture And The Origins Of Greek Comedy. A Study Of Animal Choruses, Kenneth Rothwell

Kenneth S Rothwell, Jr.

The animal choruses of Greek Old Comedy appeared on stage for a generation or two, mostly in the later fifth century B.C., and then disappeared. What factors intersected to bring them about? The book examines the evidence from vase-painting as well as ancient literary and philosophical traditions about animals and human culture.

Was The Bayeux Tapestry Made In France? The Case For St. Florent Of Saumur, George Beech Dec 2004

Was The Bayeux Tapestry Made In France? The Case For St. Florent Of Saumur, George Beech

George T. Beech

This book presents the hypothesis that the Bayeux tapestry, long believed to have been made in England, came from the Loire valley in France, from the abbey of St. Florent of Saumur. This is based on a number of different kinds of evidence, the most important of which is signs of a St. Florent/Breton influence in the portrayal of the Breton campaign in the tapestry, about a tenth of the whole.

Illustrating The Music Of The Mass: A Case Study, Elizabeth Teviotdale Sep 2003

Illustrating The Music Of The Mass: A Case Study, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A study of the figural decoration of a late 11th-century gradual from Toulouse (London, BL, MS Harley 4951, fols. 121-301), concluding that the psalmodic origin of the texts of many chants of the mass informed the way in which those of the 11th century conceived the chants.


The Sanctuary Of Apollo Hypoakraios And Imperial Athens, Peter Nulton Dec 2002

The Sanctuary Of Apollo Hypoakraios And Imperial Athens, Peter Nulton

Peter E. Nulton Ph.D.

The Cave Sanctuary of Apollo on the North Slope of the Acropolis at Athens was investigated in 1896-97 and produced a rich collection of inscriptions relating to the cult. These inscriptions are published in full for the first time in this work. The author discusses the history of the cult. Far from being of great antiquity as readers of Euripides' "Ion" have long assumed, the cult was instituted in the time of Augustus when "The Athenians thought it fitting that their archons swear an oath that upheld tradition in connection to Apollo Patroos, but simultaneously honored their 'new Apollo'", the ...

The Stammheim Missal As Tribute To Saint Bernward's Interest In Art, Elizabeth Teviotdale Feb 2001

The Stammheim Missal As Tribute To Saint Bernward's Interest In Art, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

An examination of the circumstances of the creation of the Stammheim Missal (Los Angles, J. Paul Getty Museum, MS 64) and the Ratmann Missal (Hildesheim, Dom-Museum, DS 37) in the decades after the monks of St. Michael's at Hildesheim, where the manuscripts were created, had been granted the privilege in 1150 to venerate their founder, Bishop Bernward (d. 1022) as a saint. Proposes that the Stammheim Missal was not intended to be consulted during the mass, the Ratmann Missal serving that requirement, and that it served rather as a repository of the monastery's liturgy and as a sort ...


A Pair Of Franco-Flemish Cistercian Antiphonals Of The Thirteenth Century And Their Programs Of Illumination, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 1999

A Pair Of Franco-Flemish Cistercian Antiphonals Of The Thirteenth Century And Their Programs Of Illumination, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A study of Los Angeles, Getty Museum, MS 44/Ludwig VI 5 and related fragments, extant and lost, reconstructing the original programs of illumination of their parent manuscripts, a pair of antiphonals produced in the second half of the 13th century in the Franco-Flemish border region, and establishing a taxonomy of relationships between subjects chosen for the historiated initials and the manuscript's text.


Apollo Hypoakraios Reconsidered, Peter Nulton Dec 1999

Apollo Hypoakraios Reconsidered, Peter Nulton

Peter E. Nulton Ph.D.

In 1897, the excavations of P. Kabbadias uncovered ten votive plaques in a cave on the northwest slope of the Athenian Acropolis, thereby fixing the location of the "sanctuary of Apollo in a cave" mentioned by Pausanias (I.28.4). The inscriptions indicated that they were meant as dedications to Apollo Hypoakraios or Hypo Makrais, and that the dedicants were invariably members of the college of archons. Although the corpus has increased steadily since then, the inscriptions have not been treated together since Kabbadias's original publication.

In this paper, I will offer some conclusions drawn from a thorough re-analysis ...


The Frontispiece Miniatures Of The Stammheim Missal, Elizabeth Teviotdale Oct 1999

The Frontispiece Miniatures Of The Stammheim Missal, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

Examines the frontispiece miniatures of Los Angeles, J. Paul Getty Museum, MS 64, proposing that the direct reflection of the art patronized by Bishop Bernward of Hildesheim (d. 1022) is a key component in the manuscript's role as a testament to Bernward.
