Mary, the Apostles, and the Last Judgment. Apocryphal Representations from Late Antiquity to the Middle Ages

Price €35.00


Edited by Stanislava Kuzmová and Andrea-Bianka Znorovszky


ISBN 978-615-81353-8-2

DOI: 10.22618/TP.PMAEM.20201

Volume 1 (May 2020)

Paperback, in colour, pp. 220


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.
