BOOK DESCRIPTION 

This volume presents a timely contribution to the growing body of scholarship on the apocryphal writings and their reception in the Middle Ages, especially in connection with visual representation. It aims to bridge what often remains disconnected, the visual art and the written text, the early Christian roots and medieval reception, the East and the West, as well as methodologies of various disciplines.

The studies in this volume firstly investigate issues related to the Virgin Mary, and through them, also the status, function, and identity of women. Mary and the female element thus represent significant models and/or background figures in fields pertaining to theology, religious studies, textual studies, manuscript studies, and art history in a trans-disciplinary perspective. Secondly, the studies focus on the apostles and the Last Judgment, their visual representations and the use of apocryphal sources. The volume is divided in two parts according to two major topics: Part I dealing with Mary in the Apocrypha, and Part II focusing on the Apostles and the Last Judgment.

“I’ve participated in two conferences organized by Trivent in the last few years and both were a nice experience – went smoothly, had decent talks in a good spirit. When it came to managing manuscripts, I was surprised by the professionalism by which they helped my text to be published. I definitively enjoyed working with them!”

“I have been working with the Philosophical Journal of Conflict and Violence since its debut in 2017. It has been a pleasant experience to see the how the papers take shape in the process from submission to peer review to publication. The editor-in-chief together with the Trivent team do a tremendous job and are always seeking quality above all!”
