Free Book: Age of spirituality: Late antique and early Christian art, third to seventh century

Via the blog Hieroi Logoi, I learned that the catalog from a Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit of Late Antique Christian art in 1970s, with the title Age of spirituality: Late antique and early Christian art, third to seventh century, is available as a free pdf download. It can also be read online.

The book is out of print, and a used copy on Amazon.com is selling for $349.88. I think the free digital copy is better value for money, even though the print copy is only about $.50/page, since the book is 737 pages in length.

    Silly Amazon prices should be ignored.

    Those are for the smaller exhibition catalogue and the edited symposium, not the massive volume listed above. . .but I agree that $349.88 is silly, given that it’s available for free!

    Hi,
    you´re interested in this Exhibition? Because I´m studying Art History and the period the exhibition is about, is now my concern. Don´t you have pictures from this exhibition? I mean from the installation of the exhibits..

      I have not been to the exhibition, and so the only information I have is what I have posted here.
