Pseudepigraphical Images in Early Art
The Dead Sea Scrolls & Christian Origins Library Volume 6
From The Publisher:
New investigations have demonstrated that a number of pseudepigrapha provided the textual basis for features in biblical representations in early art, especially writings expanding the stories of both the Genesis characters and Moses. As a classical archaeologist is able to reconstruct the original aspect of lost classical monuments from the scanty remains that survived, research in early biblical illustrated manuscripts demonstrated the existence of illustrated editions of pseudepigrapha from the material handed down to us and dating from later times, especially Byzantine and Latin manuscripts with biblical miniatures or ivores from the sixth to fifteenth century.
