- The Index of Christian Art records the iconography of works of Christian and
non-Christian art produced from early apostolic times (approximately 65 A.D.) up to 1400 A.D.
Begun as a card index in 1917, each card, and since 1991 each database record, contains bibliographic citations from books and journals, descriptive information, provenance, location and ownership information, and, when available, photographic reproduction of the recorded work of art.
The Index of Christian Art Database contains a portion of the Index's back files and all works electronically indexed by the archive since 1991. The database is both text and image. As works from the backfiles are electronically indexed, they will become available in the database. Reference to more than 1000 works of art are added each year.
