Opis produktu

This original book untangles fundamental confusions about historical relationships among Islam representational images and philosophy. Closely examining some of the most meaningful and best preserved premodern illustrated manuscripts of Islamic cosmographies Persis Berlekamp refutes the assertion often made by other historians of medieval Islamic art that while representational images did exist they did not serve religious purposes. The author focuses on widely disseminated Islamic images of the wonders of creation ranging from angels to humansnatching birds and argues that these illustrated manuscripts aimed to induce wonder at Gods creation as was their stated purpose. She tracks the various ways that images advanced that purpose in the genres formative milieu the century and a half following the Mongol conquest of the Islamic East in 1258. Delving into social history and into philosophical ideas relevant to manuscript and image production Berlekamp shows that philosophy occupied an established if controversial position within Islam. She thereby radically reframes representational images within the history of Islam.Highly recommended to all readers... It is a rare book in which the specialist can gain new knowledge and suggestive reinterpretations while the nonspecialist can learn about and enjoy the richness and variety of visual representations within an Islamic context Emilie SavageSmith The Art Newspaper
