about this item

Classicists, art historians, and archaeologists show how the sculptural landscape that modern scholarship works with, and that museum visitors today come face to face with, came into being largely as a result of a distinct range of late antique responses and practices. In sections on practices of deposition and reuse, regional perspectives, and grand narratives, they consider such topics as sculptural deposition and lime kilns at Roman villas in Italy and the western provinces in late antiquity, Christianity and the fate of sculpture in late antique Corinth, the fate of classical statues in late antique and Byzantine Sicily: the cases of Catania and Arigento, the shifting use of a genre: a comparison of statuary décor in homes and baths of the late Roman West, and travelers' accounts of Roman statuary in the Near East and North Africa: from limbo and destruction to museum heaven. The 14 papers are from seminars at Aarhus University in September 2008 and March 2011. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
