Textile messages : inscribed fabrics from Roman to Abbasid Egypt by Textiles from the Nile valley meeting( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The practice to supply textiles with inscriptions is well known in Egypt from Pharaonic times onwards. Nevertheless systematic studies on inscribed fabrics have been neglected until the middle of the 1990s when they almost simultaneously caught the interest of various scholars. This illustrated volume is a first compilation of what is known on the subject so far. It concentrates on textiles of the first millennium AD, a period of changing cultures, religions and languages in Egypt, mirrored by the Greek, Coptic and Arabic inscriptions on the fabrics. The emphasis lies on the historical, linguistic, sociological and artistic aspects of these textiles. Numerous fabrics from international collections are introduced. Further articles deal with the radiocarbon dating and technical aspects."--Jacket
Egypt : faith after the pharaohs by Cäcilia Fluck( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first millennium in Egypt saw a transition from an ancient pantheon of pagan gods to the one God of the three Abrahamic faiths. Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities were established in succession and peacefully co-existed for long periods of time periodically interrupted by conflict and violence, each faith responding to pre-existing traditions by either rejecting earlier artistic ideas or by adapting and assimilating them. Over 300 objects have been specially selected for this publication, drawing on the significant collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and the British Museum and reflecting the rich cultural diversity of the Nile Valley from the first to the twelfth century AD. Through beautiful works of art, including jewellery, painted panels, textiles, sculpture, calligraphy, manuscripts, glass and ceramics, we gain a better understanding of the lives of ordinary and extraordinary people in this important period in Egyptian history. The book also reveals the different types of sacred buildings - synagogue, church, and mosque - and explains their architectural history and dissemination in Egypt

Josef Strzygowski und die Berliner Museen( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vor 150 Jahren, am 7. Marz 1862, wurde Josef Strzygowski in Westgalizien (heute Polen) geboren. Nach einem Studium der Kunstgeschichte wurde er 1892 Professor in Graz, 1909 in Wien. Bald entwickelte er sich zu einem der ersten Wissenschaftler auf dem damals noch jungen Gebiet der byzantinischen Kunstgeschichte. Es ist sein Verdienst, die Bedeutung Kleinasiens, Agyptens und des Vorderen Orients fur die Entwicklung der christlichen Kunst herausgestellt zu haben. Fur den Aufbau einer hochkaratigen spatantiken und byzantinischen Sammlung an den Berliner Museen griff Wilhelm von Bode, damals Direktor der Skulpturensammlung, auf Josef Strzygowski als Experten zuruck. Mit seiner Hilfe wuchs dieser Sammlungsbereich von weniger als 100 auf etwa 2.000 Objekte an. Auch das Agyptische Museum und die Islamische Abteilung profitierten von seiner Arbeit. Der Ausstellungskatalog stellt Strzygowskis wichtige Rolle fur die Berliner Museen heraus. Gezeigt werden biografische Dokumente, zeitgenossische Zeugnisse zu seiner Tatigkeit fur Berlin und zahlreiche Objekte, die mit seiner Hilfe erworben wurden

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Det siste århundret er Silkeveien gjenoppdaget av europeiske reisende og eventyrlystne. Man kan fortsatt se for seg karavaner på endeløse vandringer over stepper og fjell til de store markedene. Fra 2000 f. Kr. ble ruten brukt for å frakte silke og andre luksusvarer fra Kina til Romerriket. Den unge republikken Uzbekistan, med sine antikke urbane kulturelle sentre, ligger i hjertet av Silkeveien. Denne boken viser den kulturelle historien til denne regionen i over to millenium. Sentral Asias posisjon i Eurasia tiltrakk seg herskere, handelsmenn, pilegrimer og misjonærer. Alexander den Store, Genghis Khan og Timur er noen av dem. De la grunnlaget for store imperier der handel, kunst og kultur ble dyrket. I byene møttes folk med ulike religioner, språk og kulturer, og varer og ideer ble utvekslet mellom nomadene og de fast bosatte i byene. Boken forteller om dette fascinerende området og dets historie. 712 illustrasjoner, 437 av dem i farger. Fotografier viser stoffer, tekstiler og kunstgjenstander fra museer og private samlinger, mange av dem publisert for første gang
