The monumental importance of the exhibition Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum lies not least in the staggering number of people it has reached.
Dressing Judeans and Christians in Antiquity / eds. Kristi Upson-Saia, Carly Daniel-Hughes, Alicia J. Batten
Review Date:9 Jul 2015
This is a very welcome addition to the study of dress in antiquity. While studies of clothing, bodily adornment and the body language of antiquity are becoming more frequent, a volume that considers the role of religious dress and the religious meanings of dress among Jews and Christians takes this research in new directions.
