The Crucified God in the Carolingian Era: Theology and Art of Christ's Passion

Framsida
Cambridge University Press, 5 juli 2001 - 338 sidor
"This book offers a new perspective on the period by examining transformations in a major current of thought as revealed through literature and artistic imagery: the doctrine of the passion and the crucified Christ. The evidence of a range of literary sources is surveyed - liturgical texts, poetry, hagiography, letters, homilies, exegetical and moral tractates - but special attention is given to writings from the discussions and debates concerning artistic images, Adoptionism, predestination, and the eucharist. Topics discussed in detail include the miniatures in the Gellone Sacramentary, Hrabanus Maurus's In honorem sanctae crucis, and later Carolingian crucifixion images such as the Utrecht Psalter illustration to Psalm 115, the miniature in the Drogo Sacramentary, and the ivory cover of the Periocpes of Henry II."--BOOK JACKET.

Fascinating; would definitely like to revisit. What's going on with Paschasius and Ratramnus? Very interesting stuff going on in the so-called dark ages. Läs hela recensionen
