As art historians draw increasingly from such cognate fields as literary theory and anthropology for new modes of inquiry, scholars in fields as diverse as music and the history of medicine are turning to images in art as sources of information for their respective disciplines. Focusing on the role of iconography in this cross-fertilization, these papers examine how students of the Middle Ages and Renaissance search for meaning in the subject matter of works of art. Art historians as well as scholars from other disciplines provide a broad spectrum of approaches to icongraphic research and to the methodological and theoretical issues involved. These papers were presented at a conference sponsored by the Index of Christian Art in Princeton in 1990. The contributers to this volume are Howard Mayer Brown, Michael Camille, John V. Fleming, Craig Harbison, Michael Ann Holly, Wolfgang Kemp, Herbert L. Kessler, V. A. Kolve, Marilyn Aronberg Lavin, Irving Lavin, Henry Maguire, Keith Moxey, Ynez Viole O'Neill, H. Colin Slim, and Richard C. Trexler.
