Augustine in Iconography

History and Legend- Edited by Joseph C. Schnaubelt and Frederick Van Fleteren- George Radan, Art Editor Joseph Reino, Literary Editor


Joseph C. Schnaubelt and Frederick van Fleteren

Augustine in Iconography: History and Legend has a threefold design: exploration of literary sources; reviews of pertinent archeology; and accounts of individual and cyclical illustrations. One hundred and thirty-two topics in the iconography of the bishop of ancient Hippo, both historical and legendary, are ascertained and analyzed; the historical and archeological background of Augustine's career, cult, and monastic influence are surveyed; four Augustinian cycles are examined; and various individual portraits of Augustine are studied.
