First published in 1900, this seminal work by the Austrian art historian Josef Strzygowski explores the iconography of the Riechischer Physiologus, a medieval bestiary that was hugely influential in the development of European art. With detailed analysis of the symbolism and meaning of the animals depicted in the Physiologus, as well as their cultural and historical context, Strzygowski provides a fascinating insight into the worldview of medieval Europe. Richly illustrated with reproductions of medieval art, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of art, culture, or religion.
