The catacombs of Rome have captured imaginations for centuries. This innovative study takes a fresh look at these underground spaces, and considers how art, space, texts, and practices can tell us more about the catacombs and the people who dug and decorated them.

About the Author:

Eric C. Smith is Visiting Assistant Professor of the History of Christianity and New Testament Studies at the Iliff School of Theology, USA.

Review:

"This clearly structured and engagingly written work presents an original methodology that combines examination of space, art, texts, and practices in an effort to understand more fully the Catacomb of Callistus and its paintings, especially those in the Cubicula of the Sacraments, in their multiple contexts. I was glad to accept the author's imaginative opening invitation to walk with 'Callistus' and ponder the paintings of 'Dionysus' for a vivid four-dimensional experience of early Christian catacomb painting." - Elizabeth Struthers Malbon, Professor, Religion and Culture, Virginia Tech, USA and author of The Iconography of the Sarcophagus of Junius Bassus: NEOFITVS ITT AD DEVM

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 224 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.5in.Ringing the city like pearls on a necklace and plunging beneath the earth into darkness, the Christian catacombs of Rome have inspired and captivated people for centuries. This book takes a new approach to the study of the catacombs, using spatial theory to understand the way the catacombs were constructed, decorated, and used. Relying on the theoretical work of Michel Foucault and Henri Lefebvre, this book moves beyond traditional forms of analysis to turn a new lens to the work of understanding these monuments of early Christianity. The location and form of the Callistus Catacomb, the art found inside, the texts referenced in that art, and the community practices performed and referenced deep underground form the heart of this innovative take on the grand burial sites of the early church. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137468031
