Pious Journeys by Linda Seidel

Book Description

In their ongoing search for divinity, Western European Christians followed many different paths to a personal connection with the eternal, including the intimacies of private prayer, the spectacle of the Mass, and the veneration of saintly relics. Along the way, art objects and artifacts served as companions, guides and comforts. The essays in this catalogue consider the central role objects and images played in these spiritual journeys. They investigate imagery's critical role in the development of personal devotions, in the organization of liturgical worship, and in practices surrounding the institution of the Eucharist and the cult of saints.

Legends in Limestone by Linda Seidel Legends in Limestone, Hardback (October 1999)

Whereas 12th-century pilgrims flocked to the church of St-Lazare in Autun to visit the relics of its patron saint, present-day pilgrims journey there to admire its superb sculpture, said to have been created by Gislebertus. These two cults, of sculptor and of saint, form the basis for this study.

Looking to Learn by Linda Seidel Looking to Learn, Paperback (September 1999)

This text presents an exhibition held at the the University of Chicago. The exhibition challenges the decontextualized approach to images and learning by setting ritual, functional and intentionally aesthetic objects side by side, together with inventories and technical viewing devices.
