The names of Masaccio (1401-28) and Masolino (1383-1440) are inseparable, and their collaboration is an essential starting point for the study of either artist. Masaccio's Holy Trinity and the recently cleaned collaborative frescos in the Brancacci Chapel in Florence are key works in the development of Western art. Paul Joannides' catalogue raisonné forms a uniquely authoritative and perfectly up-to-date study of the total oeuvre of both artists. Composed with lucidity and richly illustrated, it makes accessible to all lovers of art - from the connoisseur to the casual reader - some of the greatest paintings of the early Renaissance, and most momentous works of Western painting.

The combination of detailed technical studies with art historical insight sheds new light on the life, oeuvre, and working methods of two great Italian Renaissance masters: Masolino and Masaccio. A team from the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, the great conservation institute in Florence, joined by colleagues from the National Gallery in London and the Philadelphia Museum of Art examined all their panel paintings in European and American museums with special single sheet X-radiographs and infrared reflectographic scanning equipment. Thanks to these methods, the researchers were able to enter into the painting technique of these artists in ways that even a few years before would not have been possible. The study has lead to a greater understanding of the artists' collaboration and their chronology. It has also been possible to reconstruct more precisely a number of altarpieces and also question earlier reconstructions for Masaccio's Pisa altarpiece of 1426. Fine examples of Masaccio's underdrawing have been revealed as well as Masolino's innovative use of oil mediums. But the book is not only technical; all technical information has been correlated to art historical concerns about early Renaissance art such as the role of the guilds, the nature of collaboration between artists and other craftsmen, and the relationship between patron and artist. In fact, the book shows how a detailed technical study can answer or open up many questions that have previously been the purview of art historians who never knocked on the door of a laboratory. The book contains technical entries for each of the paintings as well as photographs of their fronts and backs, X-radiographs, and infrared reflectograms. The introduction by Carl Brandon Strehlke summarizes the results and reviews the usefulness of laboratory research for this type of art history. An essay by Roberto Bellucci and Cecilia Frosinini interweaves a social and documentary history of the two artists' lives with a technical study of their paintings. Jill Dunkerton and Dillian Gordon's essay is on the vicissitudes of the Pisa altarpiece and problems of its reconstruction. Strehlke and Mark Tucker's essay on the Santa Maria Maggiore altarpiece discusses the two artists' last collaboration. There are also specific essays by Bellucci and Frosinini on the Carnesecchi and San Giovenale altarpieces. A glossary defines the many technical terms. The book has been conceived for a general reading public and not necessarily only specialists on technique or historians of early Renaissance art.

Ranked by many scholars as the greatest master of early Italian Renaissance painting, Masaccio (1401-1428) was the first artist to use effects of light to create three-dimensional images on a two-dimensional plane. This achievement, revolutionary in Masaccio's day, is one of the painter's significant contributions to art history. This book explores Masaccio's accomplishment as epitomized by the multipaneled painting of which theSaint Andrewpanel is thought to have once formed a part: the Pisa Altarpiece, one of the truly great polyptychs in the history of Italian Renaissance art, produced in 1426 for a chapel in the church of Santa Maria del Carmine, Pisa. The text discusses Masaccio's short life and illustrious career; the commission for the altarpiece; its patron and program; the painting's original location; and the role that the church friars played in the actual commission. Finally, after examining the polyptych's individual panels, the book traces their subsequent history and recounts how art historians came to identify them.

Masolino da Panicale is a study of the life and works of the early fifteenth-century Florentine artist (active 1423-35), who is best known for his collaboration with Masaccio on the frescos of the Brancacci Chapel of Santa Maria del Carmine, Florence, restored to their original brilliance in 1983-88. This book fills a serious gap in the literature on Italian Renaissance art. Although there have been numerous, recent contributions to the study of Masolino, a detailed monograph has been lacking. Perri Lee Roberts discusses the nature of Masolino's and Masaccio's collaboration, and their styles. She includes up-to-date information about the newly-cleaned frescos in the Brancacci Chapel and other works by Masolino, a detailed analysis of his works in chronological order, a discussion of his patrons, and an evaluation of his place in the history of Early Renaissance painting. Two appendices contain all the known documents concerning Masolino, and a catalogue raisonne of his accepted, related, and rejected works.

The first great artist of the Quattrocento period of the Italian Renaissance, Masaccio would have an incredible impact on the course of Western art, in spite of his untimely death at the age of twenty-six. He is noted for his skill in imitating nature, recreating lifelike figures and his unprecedented use of chiaroscuro and three-dimensionality. Preparing the way for Leonardo and Michelangelo, Masaccio transformed the direction of Italian painting, moving it away from the idealisations of Gothic art and favouring the depiction of a more profound, natural and humanist world.

The fifteenth century was a critical juncture for the College of Cardinals. They were accused of prolonging the exile in Avignon and causing the schism. At the councils at the beginning of the period their very existence was questioned. They rebuilt their relationship with the popes by playing a fundamental part in reclaiming Rome when the papacy returned to its city in 1420. Because their careers were usually much longer than that of an individual pope, the cardinals combined to form a much more effective force for restoring Rome. In this book, shifting focus from the popes to the cardinals sheds new light on a relatively unknown period for Renaissance art history and the history of Rome. Dr. Carol M. Richardson has been awarded the Philip Leverhulme Prize (2008) in the field of History of Arts.

Christian mission in previous centuries often drew on images of imperial expansion and war. Today, foreign mission in so-called restricted-access countries is envisioned as a kind of holy espionage. But are “civilizing” crusades and warfare, even covert, appropriate images to associate with the good news of Jesus Christ? In Picturing Christian Witness, missiologist Stanley Skreslet searches for new, more holistic images of mission from Scripture. Skreslet undertakes a novel exegetical study of mission in the New Testament that focuses on the first followers of Jesus. Skreslet highlights five actions that depict the witness of these disciples: announcing good news, sharing Christ with friends, interpreting the gospel, shepherding, and building/planting. After carefully examining key biblical passages, he draws out the implications of these five images for the theology of mission and lets each image take shape visually through an array of Western and non-Western art. Picturing Christian Witness will provoke students of mission and of the Bible to imagine what mission will look like when actively embodied by contemporary disciples of Jesus.

What is political modernity? And how much of its concepts and structures has changed or remained the same with the advent of the so-called globalization? What does it mean, from a political perspective, that we live in a postmodern era? This book discusses these issues in light of the key authors and texts of the continental philosophical tradition: from Carl Schmitt to Giorgio Agamben, from Thomas Hobbes to Michel Foucault. Looking at the roots of the current historical crisis that characterizes Western political regimes, this book gazes into the past in order to trace the possible development of our current global era, in which all the classical concepts and our symbolic resources seem to be called into question, leaving a vacuum of meaning for political action as much as for political theory.
