Additional Resources

Over the last ten years the Index of Christian art has received many gifts of slides and photographs from colleagues who were keen to make them available to the wider scholarly community. In advance of actually adding them to the Index proper, which is a slow but ongoing process we have decided to make them available on the Internet. These database and resources are disparate in coverage and in many cases reflect the interests of the owners-ranging in coverage from the Classical to the neo-Classical and in media from the fresco to the misericord. Understandably there is a considerable interest on medieval material!

They have not been fully catalogued but are presented here using limited metadata in the hope that they will provide visual material that can be practically used by all. We have been fortunate in that a number of the owners have also generously agreed to make high resolution, publishable images available free of charge to those that need them and further details of these are given in the introductions to the individual sites. The hard work of all my colleagues in the Index has to be acknowledged and we own significantly to the owners of the collections.
