Documenting an exhibition organized to mark the 900th anniversary of the consecration of Saint Mark's Basilica in Venice, this scholarly catalogue illuminates the legend and iconography of the saint through a presentation of 132 objects drawn from museums throughout Europe, including numerous manuscripts of the 6th through the 14th century, ivory plaques dating from the 7th and 8th centuries, metal-relief and painted altarpieces, and many late medieval reliquaries and crucifixes reflecting the celebrated craftsmanship of Venetian goldsmiths. Eight essays exploring the cult of Saint Mark, the evolution of the iconography associated with his figure and the history of the Venice basilica preface fine reproductions and individual discussions of the featured works.
