Chapter Summary

This index of the book Pottery, Pavements, and Paradise: Iconographic and Textual Studies on Late Antiquity presents a list of Roman Emperor, and Politician names. It also presents a list of terms and concepts on Christianity, Rome and ancient art. 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); Christianity; religious identity; Roman Empire
