Essays from thirty leading experts on Insular art c.AD400–1500, across all media, including stone, vellum, cloth, metal and glass. Along with a focus on art of the Insular world of Britain and Ireland, the book also considers the contemporary European and Mediterranean background and context of Insular art, under the headings of motif, theme, symbol, transmission, translation and scholarship, offering new perspectives on familiar objects and introducing new finds. This lavishly illustrated book is a must for all serious students of Insular art.
