From Choir Book To Scrap Book: The Initials In Hmml Bean Ms 3, Elizabeth Teviotdale Jun 1996

From Choir Book To Scrap Book: The Initials In Hmml Bean Ms 3, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A consideration of the origin of a group of cuttings contained in a 19th-century album (Collegeville, Hill Monastic Manuscript Library, Bean MS 3), with an analysis is the relationship of the initials' figural subjects to the texts they introduced. The cuttings, a series of historiated and decorated initials, were taken from one of a pair of choir books made in northern France or Flanders for a house of Cistercian nuns in the 13th century.

Pomona Faculty Publications and Research

Since Michel Foucault's seminal essays on the asylum, prison, and hospital in the Age of Reason, architectural historians have begun to examine these major public institutions in the life and pathology of the early modern city. This volume extends the disciplinary focus to public assistance and monumental housing for the poor, which was often closely related in ideology and building type to asylums, prisons, monasteries, and hospitals. Foucauldian intellectual history and urban history, with its concomitant interest in vernacular traditions, converge in this comparative study of Genoa, Palermo, and Naples during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Building Medieval Constantinople, Robert G. Ousterhout

Departmental Papers (History of Art)

The visitor to modem Istanbul is often struck by the dramatic contrasts of the city: ostentatious displays of wealth appear side by side with poverty and squalor; the decrepid hovels of the poor lie in the shadows of monuments of past glory; at the same time, a new city rises amid the ruins of antiquity. How much has the character of the city changed since Byzantine times?

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

Examines the provenance and dissemination of a multivolume antiphonary produced for the Cistercian nunnery near Cambrai. The MS is presently dispersed through several collections. In 1983 the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, purchased from the German art collectors Peter and Irene Ludwig 19 leaves and four cuttings from the MS (MS Ludwig VI 5).

Latin Verse Inscriptions In Anglo-Saxon Art, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 1995

Latin Verse Inscriptions In Anglo-Saxon Art, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

This article identifies the corpus of surviving Anglo-Saxon works of art with newly composed Latin verse inscriptions: 19 paintings and drawings in seven manuscripts, one carved stone, and one engraved portable altar. A significant flourishing of the practice of including verse in works of art is associated with the Benedictine monastic reform movement of the mid-10th century. The nature of the relationship, both denotative and spatial, between the inscriptions and the images they accompany is explored through the examination of selected representative examples. It is proposed that the Anglo-Saxons understood this poetry to be an essentially written and visual art ...
