Michele Bacci and Vladimir Ivanovici, eds.:
(RIHA Journal 0222-0229)

This thematic issue draws on an international conference co-hosted by the Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max-Planck-Institute for Art History, Rome and the Swiss Institute in Rome. By exploring the various traditions of iconic living present in the Roman world in the period preceding the affirmation of the icon, the contributions recreate part of the context in which the concept of icon was formed. In addition, they invite readers to add a new perspective on the phenomenon: that of surrogate for the living iconic body.
