These nine papers, taken from an international colloquium held in Langenlois, Austria, in 1997, suggest ways in which architectural reliefs from ancient Egypt, the Near East, the classical world and medieval Europe should be read in order to understand a historical narrative. As the papers demonstrate the principal subject of these narratives, whether fictional or historical, was warfare. Illustrated throughout with examples, the contributions discuss New Kingdom reliefs, Assyrian depictions of war, narrative artworks from the Mediterranean from the Archaic to the Hellenistic periods, the Ara Pacis Augustae , Roman triumphal columns, Byzantine paintings, and Christian and medieval works such as the Bayeux Tapestry. German text.
