The World between Empires: Art and Identity in the Ancient Middle East by Blair Fowlkes-Childs, Michael Seymour
Publisher: Yale University Press



Overview

A timely and definitive exploration of the art and culture of the ancient civilizations situated between Rome and the Middle East that presents a new way of understanding the region’s influential heritage Emerging as an urgent response to the destruction of cultural heritage in Iraq, Syria, and Iran, this publication examines the art and architecture of regions that served as major trade routes between the Roman and Parthian Empires from 100 B.C. to A.D. 250. The book examines the cultural histories of Timna, Petra, Baalbek, Palmyra, Dura-Europos, and Hatra together for the first time, capturing the intricate web of influence that emerged in the Ancient Middle East through the exchange of goods and ideas across the region. Works illustrated and discussed include statues, coins, reliefs, architectural elements and friezes, painted tiles and wall fragments, jewelry, textiles, and more. The World Between Empires is the definitive book on this subject, preserving what has been lost to time or violence, and contextualizing the significance of these works on a local and global scale.
