Zeichentragende Artefakte im sakralen Raum
Schriftgestöber und geritztes Gold. Orientalisierende Inschriften in der toskanischen Tafelmalerei um 1300
Sign-bearing artifacts are immanent elements of sacred spaces in many cultures. Often, one encounters a phenomenon there that might be described as deliberate “invisibility,” the conscious “concealment” of artefacts and writing. The volume examines this interplay of presence and invisibility using the example of sign-bearing artefacts in sacral spaces in various religions in the Near East and Europe.
