The nineteen essays assembled in this Festschrift represent the multiplicity of interests evident in Elisabeth (Elisheva) Revel-Neher's work. They cover a variety of subjects dealing with pictorial messages encrypted in various artistic media, and address a broad array of topics: Jewish identity in the late antique period; patronage in late antique Jewish and Christian religious architecture; Jewish-Christian polemics and the representation of the "Other"; the question of Jewish or Christian illuminators of Hebrew books; the cultural background of illustrations in Hebrew manuscripts; Christian cosmology and dogma; the imagery of the Temple; and Jewish and Christian perceptions of women.Contributors are Rivka Ben-Sasson, Walter Cahn, Evelyn Cohen, Andreina Contessa, Eva Frojmovic, Lihi Habas, Dalia-Ruth Halperin, Colum Hourihane, Emma Maayan-Fanar, Herbert L.
