About this item

Perspectives on Early Islamic Art in Jerusalem examines the historical and physical evidence for the appearance and function of the Haram al-Sharif in the period between the conquest of the city by Muslim armies in the AD 630s and the construction of the Dome of the Rock in the 690s, as well as a host of historical events during that time period that influence early Islamic art in Jerusalem. This book places a focus on very specific monuments, problems, and questions, leading to a consideration of the much larger issues, including the relationship between the new Muslim rules of the city and its inhabitants and the role of its earlier traditions. It seeks to pose unexpected and provocative questions regarding Islamic art and art history. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
