More than 400 distinguished scholars, including archaeologists, art historians, historians, epigraphers, and theologians, have worked together to create the 1,455 entries in this monumental encyclopedia — the first comprehensive reference work of its kind. From Aachen to Zurzach, Paul Corby Finney’s three-volume masterwork draws on archaeological and epigraphic evidence
to offer readers a basic orientation to early Christian architecture, sculpture, painting, mosaic, and portable artifacts created
roughly between ad 200 and 600 in Africa, Asia, and Europe. Clear, comprehensive, and heavily illustrated, this work will be
an essential resource for all those interested in late antique and early Christian art and history.
