New database: Index of Christian Art

New Resource

This thematic / iconographic index of Early Christian and medieval art objects is now available to UH students. The Index records works of art produced without geographical limitations from early apostolic times up to A.D. 1550 (extended in the case of the Morgan and Princeton Library projects to include this manuscript holdings up to the middle of the sixteenth century). Works are largely western, but art from North Africa and the Near East are also represented. Seventeen different media are represented in the archive, and these include manuscripts, metalwork, sculpture, painting, glass, and so forth. The Internet database presently contains nearly 80,000 work of art records which are accompanied by over one-hundred thousand images in color and black and white. Many of these images have never before been digitized and are published here for the first time.

Library customers may link to the index at or by clicking on the Art Databases link on our website (
