Spätantike und Byzanz. Bestandskatalog Badisches Landesmuseum Karlsruhe
TextilienByzanz zwischen Orient und Okzident
Finds of textiles from Early Byzantine Egypt represent the most extensive genre among the Byzantine artefacts of the Baden State Museum Karlsruhe. A total of 207 objects, including tunics, head coverings, upholstery material, blankets and curtains, give a vivid impression of the appearance of early Byzantine clothing and textile furnishings. In a detailed catalogue section and introductory chapters, particular attention is paid to the production technology and the determination of the function of the textiles. Apart from few exceptions, the objects were previously unpublished.
