Age of Transition

Details

This volume explores cultural interaction between Christian and Jewish communities and the world of Islam. The eleven essays address such topics as the transmission of Christian imagery in the Mediterranean, icons preserved in the Holy Monastery of St Catherine at Sinai, interaction between Jewish communities and the Muslim world, the purposeful mutilation of figurative floor mosaics in churches and synagogues, the evolution of classical and Byzantine motifs in a new cosmology for Muslim rulers, and interconnections in the realm of music.
