Charles T. Little is curator in the Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters, The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Willibald Sauerlander is director emeritus of the Zentralinstitut fur Kunstgeschichte, Munich.
Acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 1960, the Cloisters Cross has been the focus of much speculation and study. Parker (art history, Fordham Univ.), editor of The Cloisters: Studies in Honor of the 50th Anniversary (LJ 9/1/92), has collaborated here with Little, curator of medieval art at the museum, to produce an in-depth examination of this carved ivory cross. The authors place the cross in context with other religious art of the l1th and 12th centuries while exploring theological and cultural influences. To their credit, they have provided an extremely detailed dissection of the cross, closely scrutinizing all carvings and inscriptions and comparing it with art of the same era, thus giving the book some breadth. A fascinating, albeit specialized, work. Recommended for medieval art collections or large academic libraries.
