Insights from anthropology, religious studies, biblical studies, sociology, classics, and Jewish studies are here combined to provide a cutting-edge guide to dress and religion in the Greco-Roman World and the Mediterranean basin. Clothing, jewellery, cosmetics, and hairstyles are among the many aspects examined to show the variety of functions of dress in communication and in both establishing and defending identity. The volume begins by reviewing how scholars in the fields of classics, anthropology, religious studies, and sociology examine dress. The second section then looks at materials, including depictions of clothing in sculpture and in Egyptian mummy portraits. The third (and largest) part of the book then examines dress in specific contexts, beginning with Greece and Rome and going on to Jewish and Christian dress, with a specific focus on the intersection between dress, clothing and religion. By combining essays from over twenty scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds, the book provides a unique overview of different approaches to and contexts of dress in one volume, leading to a greater understanding of dress both within ancient societies and in the contemporary world.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ... HISTORY OF COSTUME THIS chapter describes the costume of the Egyptians, Greeks, and Eomans, and briefly sketches the development of costume in France. No references are made to historical events of the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, because the costumes changed so little that such reference would scarcely be a help in placing period styles. In the description of the costumes of the French, however, from the Merovingians up to the present time, a brief outline is given, since frequently a costume is placed by calling it Empire, Revolution, Louis XVI, or Directoire. The important points to remember in the different costumes are: 1. Silhouette, i. e., bustle, hoop. 2. Texture, i. e., satin, taffeta. 3. Details, i. e., accessories. The books used in reference are: Frederick Hottenboth, Le Costume. John Beat, All About Dress. Challemel, History of Fashion in France. M. Jules Quichebat, Histoire du Costume en France. Paul Lacboix, Manners, Customs and Dress Dur-ing the Middle Ages. PLATE III.--Late Gothic Tapestry Designed and Woven by the Herter Looms Guide to Egyptian Collection in the British Museum. Guide to the Greek and Roman Collection in the British Museum. Flindees Petbie, Arts and Crafts of Ancient Egypt. Paqttet Fbebes, Costumes. In his longing for adornment, primitive man.first decorated his body with the stains of berries and leaves, painting designs much like those on the tattooed man of to-day. In his need for protection, he first covered his body with leaves--with the fig leaf of popular tradition--and then with knotted grasses and with skins. But it was not long before he discovered that these materials which he had been using in their natural state could be made more durable and convenient by a process of intercrossing or...

This is the first general monograph on ancient Greek dress in English to be published in more than a century. By applying modern dress theory to the ancient evidence, this book reconstructs the social meanings attached to the dressed body in ancient Greece. Whereas many scholars have focused on individual aspects of ancient Greek dress, from the perspectives of literary, visual, and archaeological sources, this volume synthesizes the diverse evidence and offers fresh insights into this essential aspect of ancient society.

Twenty chapters present the range of current research into the study of textiles and dress in classical antiquity, stressing the need for cross and inter-disciplinarity study in order to gain the fullest picture of surviving material. Issues addressed include: the importance of studying textiles to understand economy and landscape in the past; different types of embellishments of dress from weaving techniques to the (late introduction) of embroidery; the close links between the language of ancient mathematics and weaving; the relationships of iconography to the realities of clothed bodies including a paper on the ground breaking research on the polychromy of ancient statuary; dye recipes and methods of analysis; case studies of garments in Spanish, Viennese and Greek collections which discuss methods of analysis and conservation; analyses of textile tools from across the Mediterranean; discussions of trade and ethnicity to the workshop relations in Roman fulleries. Multiple aspects of the production of textiles and the social meaning of dress are included here to offer the reader an up-to-date account of the state of current research. The volume opens up the range of questions that can now be answered when looking at fragments of textiles and examining written and iconographic images of dressed individuals in a range of media. The volume is part of a pair together with Prehistoric, Ancient Near Eastern and Aegean Textiles and Dress: an interdisciplinary anthology edited by Mary Harlow, C_cile Michel and Marie-Louise Nosch
