Late Antique and Early Christian Gems. (Spätantike - Frühes Christentum - Byzanz Kunst im ersten Jahrtausend. Reihe B: Studien und Perspektiven).
Wiesbaden: Reichert 2007. 388 S., 1300 schw.-w. Abb. 4° Kart. *neuwertig* Throughout the Middle Ages, Roman gems and cameos were highly valued as intrinsically precious objects or even as possessing magical properties. During the Renaissance, large collections of gems were formed by aristocratic collectors who sought inspiration from the classical images engraved on them, and gems have been collected for similar reasons ever since. With the exception of a few dedicated antiquaries, however, collectors and scholars over the last five hundred years or so have generally ignored late antique and early Christian gems. This study presents more than 1000 gems from different collections, more than 300 of them unpublished so far. They are presented according to different genres, themes, material and place or time of production. The catalogue is completed by about 1300 illustrations. Versand D: 4,00 EUR Gemmen; Kunst
