Database of textual descriptions and bibliographic references for over 75,000 works of Early Christian and Medieval art in 17 media, created from early apostolic times to 1400. (Additional holdings being added will extend the date range for manuscripts to the sixteenth century.) Extensive thematic and iconographic indexing is also provided. Approximately 100,000 are linked for viewing, and citations are given for published sources of reproductions, if known. The online database is a portion of the 200,000-item indexed picture file compiled at Princeton University. Three copies of the complete index exist and may be consulted at: Dumbarton Oaks Research Library in Washington, D.C.; Getty Research Center, Los Angeles; and Rijksuniversiteit, Utrecht. Formerly known as the Index of Christian Art. (Updated annually)
