The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Bible and the Arts

Topical Outline of Contents

This outline provides a general overview of the conceptual scheme of The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Bible and the Arts. Main topics are organized primarily by art form (literature, music, visual arts, and theater and performance). There is also a series of entries on the Bible and the arts in regions of the world in which biblical art emerged and developed in the contexts of colonialism and postcolonial cultures. For the reader’s convenience, the main categories are further subdivided into broad time periods: Ancient (up to the fifth century c.e.), Middle Ages (fifth to fifteenth centuries), Modern/Colonial (fifteenth to twentieth centuries), and Contemporary (twentieth century to present). Entries under each subtopic are listed alphabetically.

The topics are not mutually exclusive. Many entries involve more than one art form and/or cover more than one time period (e.g., William Blake, whose work is both visual and literary, or South Asian Art, which covers multiple art forms and spans more than fifteen centuries) and therefore appear under multiple topics. Entries in the Encyclopedia are organized alphabetically. Entries in this outline are arranged under the following headings:
