Coptic Textiles Talk

Postby Stitchlily on Sat Feb 14, 2009 1:33 pm

Just thought I'd let you know theres a talk on Coptic Textiles in the [url]Hunt Museum[/url], Limerick, on Tues 12th May 2009.

[b]* ‘Intimate artifacts: their symbols, imageries and classification. Studies of Coptic textiles in the collection of the National Museum of Ireland’
�aker: Anna Kadzik, Winner of the 2008 John Hunt Memorial Bursa

Anna discusses the role, which the history of textiles can play in understanding Egyptian societies (in terms of historical and religious changes during the Roman, Byzantine, Coptic and Arab periods), and the analysis of the dress and its decoration reflecting attitudes to political changes and moral propriety.

I remember seeing a bunch of Coptic textiles in the Coptic museum in Cairo - very cool stuff.

There are some from the late Roman period on display at the National Museum at the moment.
