INVENTORY OF BIBLICAL SCENES
John Dominic Crossan
Welcome to two databases of Christian Art.
APOCICON is dedicated to art which parallels early Christian Apocrypha; that is, most of its entries are for non-Biblical traditions from the early church..
INVENTORY is of Biblical Scenes in Pre-Constantinian (ante pacem) Christian Art.
Professor Cartlidge would appreciate your report of errors and difficulties in your use of these databases. The material is for your use, but we expect that use of the databases will honor the standard norms of academic integrity.
Thank you for looking us up.
