Chapter Summary

This bibliography presents a list of reference articles and books relevant to the discussion on the early Christian art, Roman Empire. The primary visual images for Christians of the Roman Empire after Constantine were simple symbols of religious identity: the monogram of Christ or the cross. Sophisticated narrative art illustrating stories of the Bible also presents unambiguous declarations of Christian identity. Mosaics and frescoes are heavily used in art-historical studies, but African Red Slip Ware (ARS) and a related product, African lamps, have been a much less exploited source for late antique imagery.

Keywords: African red slip ware (ARS); early Christian art; Roman Empire
