Chapter Summary

This glossary section presents the list of terms that occur in the book Ancient Mosaic Pavements. The book is intended to focus attention on the iconography and on some of the traditional details concerning images and their worship. It is not meant to provide an overall picture of the mosaics, a chronological review, or a comprehensive story of the evolution of mosaics. The discussion takes the form of a general comparison, divided according to topics such as Jewish symbols, biblical episodes, Nilotic scenes, personifications, a comparison of synagogue and church images on mosaics, and other specific subjects.

Keywords: church image; Jewish symbol; mosaic pavement
