Dictionary of Christian Antiquities Hardback


A Dictionary of Christian Antiquities provides a detailed and comprehensive account of all aspects of the early Christian Church.

Remarkable in their range and depth of scholarship, the volumes cover the organisation and history of the church, its legislation and revenues; church worship and ceremonial; music, vestments, objects and insignia; sacred places and symbolism; saints and ecclesiastical figures; church architecture; church art; graves, catacombs and tombs; and the religious calendar.

Many of the entries are major essays by key figures.

Uniquely, full reference is given to original sources.

With a new introduction by leading authority on the history of Christianity, Michael Ledger-Lomas, these impressive volumes form a unique and valuable resource.
