Le sanctuaire d'Allat à Palmyre by Michał Gawlikowski( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1975, news of an exceptional discovery in Palmyra rapidly made the rounds within the scholarly community. Digging the ruins of a small sanctuary, archaeologists from the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology University of Warsaw uncovered a very well preserved statue of the goddess Athena, identified in Palmyra with the tribal goddess Allat. This Arabian deity did not hold a leading position in the Palmyrene pantheon, yet was deeply worshipped by the local Arab tribes. The book by archaeologist Michal Gawlikowski, the excavator who made the discovery and lecturer at the University of Warsaw, eminent scholar and expert on Palmyra and its antiquities, brings an in-depth study of this statue, set in a detailed examination of the architectural evidence for the sanctuary itself, which existed from the 1st through the 4th century AD. The author reconstructs successive stages in the development of this cult place and the respective architectural decor. The volume, in French, is an excellent example of an interdisciplinary approach to the study of archaeological excavation data, compared and critically analyzed in the context of a discussion on epigraphic and numismatic sources, reaching also into the fields of art. history and religious studies

The wall paintings from the monastery on Kom H in Dongola by Małgorzata Martens-Czarnecka( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume is a complete pubication of a set of 144 religious paintings from the 11th through the 13th-14th centuries discovered by Polish archaeologists in Dongola, the capital of the Christian Nubian kingdom of Makuria, which existed in the valley of the Middle Nile from the 6th through the 14th century. The murals come from the monastic enclosure on Kom H, from a church, but also from an ascetic monk's cell turned chapel, and two substantial architectural complexes of the Northwest and Southwest Annexes. The author discusses this religious painting assemblage in thematical order, presenting Biblical and apocryphal scenes taken from the Old and New Testament, representations of holy figures including archangels and saints, images of Nubian church and royal dignitaries, and figures of donors that also appeared among the murals. Finally, she deals with compositions, like the unique prothesis and coronation scenes, as well as individual ornamental motifs. The catalogue takes a topographical approach, describing the paintings in detail and illustrating each item as richly as possible. A selection of perspective views of individual buildings, rooms, and walls facilitates quick understanding of the painting decoration systems in the various monastery buildings and annexes, and gives grounds for evaluation of the state of preservation, artistic quality, and iconography of particular paintings.--page 4 of cover
Pachoras Faras : the wall paintings from Cathedrals of Aetios, Paulos and Petros by Stefan Jakobielski( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The catalogue of wall paintings from the cathedral in Faras, published by the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology University of Warsaw, is the second part of a scientific publication of an early Christian cathedral uncovered in 1961-1964 by a Polish team of archaeologists headed by Prof. Kazimierz Michałowski. The discovery was made as part of the Nubian Campaign, a UNESCO-led program of archaeological salvage operations put into motion by the construction of the Great Aswan Dam. The first volume authored by Włodzimierz Godlewski, entitled Pachoras. The Cathedrals of Aetios, Paulos and Petros. The Architecture, presented the architecture of the cathedral, whereas the second volume concerns the wall paintings from the interior of this building, saved only by a great effort of Polish archaeologists and restorers, most of them from the National Museum in Warsaw. "The discovery of the cathedral in Pachoras is considered among the greatest archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. It revolutionized knowledge of the Middle Nile Valley in post-antique times. The Christian kingdoms of Nubia appeared in entirely new light, bringing new historical data on the history of the Church in Nubia and its connection with the rest of the Christian world. A new scientific discipline was born, Nubiology, and Warsaw became its world center," writes Prof. Adam Łukaszewicz from the University of Warsaw in his review of the book, highly rating this new and complete synthesis of the murals written and edited by Stefan Jakobielski, a Nubiologist of world repute, one of the few still active members of the original excavation team that had worked in Faras. The study was written by Jakobielski (introduction, architectural resumé and his main theme, the chronology of the murals) with Małgorzata Martens-Czarnecka adding a chapter on the manner of the painting. The main body of the volume is composed of a catalogue of 154 paintings, the descriptions of which were written by both the mentioned authors collaborating with Bożena Mierzejewska, Bożena Rostkowska and Magdalena Łaptaś (representing at the time the Research Centre for Mediterranean Archaeology, now Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures of the Polish Academy of Sciences, like the first two authors, and the National Museum in Warsaw). The entries give an overview of all the essential metric data as well as location, inventory numbers and state of preservation. The descriptions follow a set scheme: composition, dress and ornaments, attributes and coloring, ending in a commentary discussing the interpretation of the scene or motif. Inscriptions, wherever present, are treated separately, presenting a transcription and translation, all by Jakobielski, revised by Adam Łajtar. A set of references updated to 2015 has been presented with each entry. The murals are illustrated richly with field photos of the paintings before they were taken down from the cathedral walls and post-conservation images (recently repeated at the National Museum in Warsaw for the part of the collection prepared for display in the recently opened new Faras Gallery). The interpretation of the murals is enhanced by some remarkable and well researched drawings made by experienced documentalists from the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology. The volume was edited by Jakobielski. The concept of the catalogue presentation was prepared by Iwona Zych. It includes a chronological overview of all the paintings on a foldout timeline, a series of drawings of the walls of the cathedral presenting the location of all of the murals and a table of all the ornamentational motifs, patterns and pattern repeats, plates collecting comparative drawings of the bishops of Pachoras, kings of Makuria and Nubian dignitaries in their robes, accompanied by appropriate and relevant indices and concordance tables, all of which provide students of the wall paintings with the very essential tools for their understanding and interpretation. The monograph covers all of the paintings that were recorded on the walls of the cathedral and it is more than just a catalogue of the individual murals held by the National Museums in Khartoum and Warsaw. It also includes paintings that were not removed from the walls of the cathedral and, after the submerging of the site in the waters of the dam lake, no longer exist. The publication is therefore, "sui generis an inventory of the wall paintings decorating once the walls of the now submerged cathedral," sums up Łukaszewicz in his review. -- Publisher
