A Dictionary of Christian Antiquities provides a detailed and comprehensive account of all aspects of the early Christian Church from a 19th-century perspective. Remarkable in its range and depth of scholarship, the two-volume set covers the organization and history of the church, its legislation and revenues; church worship and ceremonial; music, vestments, objects and insignia; sacred places and symbolism; saints and ecclesiastical figures; church architecture; church art; graves, catacombs and tombs; and the religious calendar. With a new introduction by leading authority on the history of Christianity, Michael Ledger-Lomas, these impressive volumes form a unique and valuable resource.
