Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Jewish Pictorial Traditions in Early Christian Art contains a detailed table of contents and the introduction. It discusses whether early Christian illustration was a completely new phenomenon, or whether in addition to Greco-Roman traditions it was also influenced by Jewish exemplars. On the other hand, Judaism has been seen traditionally as opposed to images in principle. However, after the discovery of ancient Jewish picture cycles the dependence of early Christian illustrations on Jewish exemplars was frequently suspected.

Keywords: ancient Jewish picture cycles; early Christian illustrations; Greco-Roman traditions; Jewish exemplars
