Connect to Resource

Founded at Princeton in 1917 by Charles Rufus Morey, as the Index of Christian Art, the Archive of Medieval Art has evolved over the past near-century from a modest collection of painstakingly catalogued photographs into one of the most important archives of medieval art in existence.  The Index records works of art produced throughout the “Long Middle Ages,” from early apostolic times until the sixteenth century in seventeen different media. Although the collection’s emphasis has been on the art of western Europe and Byzantium, in recent years it has added significant holdings from Coptic Egypt, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Syria, Armenia, and the Near East.
