(p.239) 6 Iconography
The Apocryphal Adam and Eve in Medieval Europe

Brian Murdoch (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The iconographic tradition is limited and very much in the shade of the biblical Genesis cycles. There is a cycle of Vita Adae illustrations in the manuscript of the German poem by Lutwin from the workshop of Diebold Lauber in Alsace, and some other isolated manuscript illustrations. Scenes from the Vita Adae are also found in sculpture on a church at Thann, also in Alsace. There is a wider tradition of Holy Rood iconography.

Keywords:   iconography, Genesis cycles, manuscript illustration, Diebold Lauber, Lutwin, church sculpture, Thann
