Description
Medieval Jerusalem was a vibrant international centre and home to multiple cultures, faiths and languages. Harmonious and dissonant influences from Persian, Turkish, Greek, Syrian, Armenian, Georgian, Coptic, Ethiopian, Indian and European traditions invested the city with a key role in shaping the art of the Middle Ages. Through essays on more than 200 works of art, this beautiful volume explores the relationship between the historical and the archetypal city of Jerusalem, uncovering the ways in which the aesthetic achievements it inspired enhanced and enlivened the medieval world. Dazzling illustrations complement this panoptic story.
