More than 400 distinguished scholars, including archaeologists, art historians, historians, epigraphers, and theologians, have written the 1,455 entries in this monumental encyclopedia—the first comprehensive reference work of its kind.
From Aachen to Zurzach, Paul Corby Finney’s three-volume masterwork draws on archaeological and epigraphic evidence to offer readers a basic orientation to early Christian architecture, sculpture, painting, mosaic, and portable artifacts created roughly between AD 200 and 600 in Africa, Asia, and Europe.
Clear, comprehensive, and richly illustrated, this work will be an essential resource for all those interested in late antique and early Christian art, archaeology, and history.
Note that these three volumes will display as a single resource in your digital library.
This is a reference work that has broad appeal; although it is ‘designed as an entry-level research tool’ and thus is not as comprehensive as specialists in any one particular area might desire, there is much to be learned here and it should be consulted often.
— Religious Studies Review
[The encyclopedia] is a guide to a new world; indeed, so broad is its range of reference that it is almost a guide to late antiquity as a whole. . . . A triumph of intellectual generosity.
— Peter Brown in the New York Review of Books
