Index of Christian Art Launches new Byzantine resource
When Lois Drewer (former Research Scholar in the Index of Christian Art in Princeton University) died she left behind a number of unpublished book-length manuscripts. Among these was her Calendar of Saints in Byzantine Manuscripts and Frescos – a work she had undertaken for a number of years. It is substantially complete but without her knowledge and expertise ICA have decided to publish it “as is” with the realization that there may be errors but also with the hope that it is of use.
This was intended to be a reference work on illustrated calendars of saints in Byzantine manuscripts and frescoes and is now available online on the Index of Christian Art website http://ica.princeton.edu/drewer/intro.php
Included is Lois’s iconographical analysis of motifs and narratives.
