9780819560407: Graven Images: New England Stonecarving and its Symbols, 1650–1815

In Puritan New England, with its abiding concern for things not of this world and its distrust of forms and ceremonies, one art flourished: the symbolic art of mortuary monument stonecarvers. This carefully researched, beautifully illustrated work was the first to consider this art in depth as a meaningful aesthetic-spiritual expression. It is reissued for today’s readers, with a new preface outlining changes in the field since the book appeared in 1966.

Review:

“The classic exemplar of the method of looking at icons on gravestones and relating them to religious texts in an effort to reveal their meaning was perfected by Allan Ludwig in his Graven Images, first published in 1966...This edition provides the young scholar with a time-tested model of scholarship and analysis and the seasoned scholar with new reflections on old work.”—Journal of American Folklore
