(p.187) 16 The Word and the Flesh
Christianity and Monasticism in Aswan and Nubia

Karel C. Innemée

American University in Cairo Press

In comparing the way that Nubian churches have been decorated to those in Egypt and the Byzantine reach, the author argues that Nubia shows more Coptic influence. In Middle Byzantine art specific iconographical schemes have been developed in which the liturgical calendar and the symbolism of the building have functioned as guidelines.
