About this title: The stunning mosaics that illustrate the story of Creation in the church of San Marco in Venice are the focus of Penny Howell Jolly's compelling and provocative book. Although the genesis mosaics allegedly copy a nearly destroyed fifth-century illuminated Greek manuscript, Jolly interprets them as a social document revealing the essential misogyny that existed in 13th-century Venice. 12 color plates. 34 b&w illustrations.
