Dillenberger Lecture Series: Pseudo-Arabic as a Marker of Christian Identity in Middle Byzantine Art and Architecture

Friday, March 10, 2017 - 5:00pm

​“Things” can help us understand social identities, relationships, and practices in the medieval world, especially in situations where textual documentation is minimal or completely absent. In this lecture, Dr. Alicia Walker explores how pseudo-Arabic motifs on medieval Christian buildings and objects materialized social identities and spiritual authority among monastic communities across the eastern Mediterranean, thereby attesting to an interconnectedness that is only thinly documented in the written record.
