9780892368563: Holy Image, Hallowed Ground: Icons from Sinai

This work features forty-three of the world's rarest - and rarely exhibited - icons. At the base of Mount Sinai sits the oldest continuously inhabited monastery in the Christian world: The Holy Monastery of Saint Catherine at Sinai which houses the most important collection of Byzantine icons remaining today. This catalogue, published in conjunction with the exhibition Holy Image, Hallowed Ground: Icons from Sinai (J. Paul Getty Museum, November 2006 - March 2007) features forty-three of the monastery's extremely rare - and rarely exhibited - icons and six manuscripts still little-known to the world at large. The exhibition and catalogue bring to life the central role of the icon in Byzantine times. Themes include the icon's status as holy object, ways in which icons sanctified the place of worship, and the monks' quest for the holy. The Greek Orthodox monastery at Mount Sinai not only functioned as a major pilgrimage site for centuries but was also a cultural crossroads. Accompanying essays explore how its contact with the outside world, through pilgrimage, resulted in aesthetic exchanges between the monastery and Coptic, Crusader, and Islamic art.

Icons from Sinai: Holy Image, Hallowed Ground: Nelson, Robert & Icons from Sinai: Holy Image, Hallowed Ground Nelson, Robert S . & Kristen m Collins (eds.) Editore: J Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, (2006) Nuovo/Paperback Quantità: 1 Prezzo: EUR 125 Descrizione libro: J Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, 2006. Quarto gate-fold paperback, 304pp., colour & b&w illustrations. . The Holy Monastery of Saint Catherine at Sinai, Egypt, holds the finest collection of Byzantine icons and manuscripts in the world. Isolated in the Sinai desert at the foot of the mountain where Moses is said to have received the Tablets of the Law, the monastery was sequestered from the larger part of the Byzantine Empire and escaped successive waves of iconoclasm that led to the destruction of icons across the empire. Its treasured collection thus preserves an unbroken tradition of icons and tells the story of icon painting and veneration from the sixth century to the present. The exhibition catalogue brings to life the central role of the icon in Byzantine religious practices. Themes include the icon's status as holy object, the ways in which the icon sanctified the place of worship, and the monks' quest for the holy. The Greek Orthodox monastery at Mount Sinai not only functioned as a major pilgrimage site for centuries but was also a cultural crossroads at the center of the shifting sands of ecclesiastical and secular politics. The accompanying essays explore how the monastery's contact with the outside world, through pilgrimage, resulted in aesthetic exchanges between the monastery and Coptic, Crusader, and Islamic art; and between the Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic communities in Europe.
