Description: Caves to Cathedrals: Visual Arts in Ancient and Medieval Texts is a compilation of primary sources, in English translation, that help clarify or contextualize artistic production in the pre-modern Western world. The visual arts and sources regarding them, however, are more broadly defined here than is typical of most other sourcebooks. A wide array of ancient and medieval visual culture is considered, including fashion, stage scenery, and other types of display such as triumphal and funerary processions, a lavish dinner party, and gladiatorial games.Readers will also find texts with something of a practical or even archaeological bent: an eyewitness account of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, excerpts from the law code of Hammurabi, and descriptions of such things as the process of mummification, how to make a stained glass window, and a Viking ship burial. The selected texts are often amusing and occasionally even a little shocking but always meant to make the past come to life. Caves to Cathedrals is an ideal textbook companion for Survey of Western Art courses.
