Sometimes enjoying considerable favor, sometimes less, iconography has been an essential element in medieval art historical studies since the beginning of the discipline. Some of the greatest art historians-including Male, Warburg, Panofsky, Morey, and Schapiro-have devoted their lives to understanding and structuring what exactly the subject matter of a work of medieval art can tell . Over the last thirty or so years, scholarship has seen the meaning and methodologies of the term considerably broadened.

This companion provides a state-of-the-art assessment of the influence of the foremost iconographers, as well as the methodologies employed and themes that underpin the discipline. The first section focuses on influential thinkers in the field, while the second covers some of the best known methodologies; the third, and largest section, looks at some of the major themes in medieval art. Taken together, the three sections include over forty chapters, each of which deals with an individual topic. An introduction, historiographical evaluation and bibliography accompanies the individual essays. The authors are recognized experts in the field, and each essay includes original analyses and/or case studies which will hopefully open the field for future research.
