Title: Images of the crucifixion in late antiquity : the testimony of engraved gems / Felicity Harley.
Author: Harley, Felicity
Issue Date: 2001
School/Discipline: Centre for European Studies and General Linguistics
Abstract: A study which takes as its focus five gemstones, each engraved with an image of the Crucifixion and previously dated to the Late Antique period. The study undertakes an examination of the gems' iconographic as well as compositional, physical and epigraphic evidence, and demonstrates the way in which critical information regarding the evolution of the Crucifixion image in Late Antiquity has been seriously obstructed in previous studies through the dismissal, misapplication and misinterpretation of the gems. Focusing on iconography, it presents a revised chronology for the gems, suggesting that only three are Late Antique, the fourth being early Byzantine.
