Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient author names and terms that are mentioned in the book titled Animals as Disguised Symbols in Renaissance Art. The book demonstrates that Renaissance artists, particularly in Italy, perpetuated the symbolic contexts of ancient and medieval animal symbolism, and illustrates how this was disguised under the veil of genre, religious or mythological narrative and, so-called, scientific naturalism. Traditional assumptions regarding a fundamental divide between medieval and Renaissance culture have obscured many aspects of conceptual and moral conservatism as well as deliberate archaisms, which find expression in the persistence of medieval iconography after 1400.

Keywords: medieval animal symbolism; Renaissance culture
