Index of Christian Art

Index of Christian Art

Based on the printed work of the same title begun at Princeton University in 1917, the Index of Christian Art is a thematic and iconographic index of early Christian and medieval art objects from early apostolic times to approximately 1400 A.D. While coverage is predominantly of Christian iconography, Jewish, Islamic, and non-ecclesiastical subjects are also covered. The database contains a portion of the index's backfiles as well as all works cataloged since 1991. Entries include descriptive information, provenance, location and ownership information, bibliographical references, and, when available, a photographic reproduction of the work of art.
