Abstract

Discussion about artifacts with “magical” effects generally focuses on the explicit messages written on them, but what is the relationship between text and image? Does the “magic” come from an interaction between these two elements or should they be interpreted separately? This volume examines the intricate relationship between text and image on amulets and cameos, among others, across different cultures and centuries.

Abstract

Sign-bearing artifacts are immanent elements of sacred spaces in many cultures. Often, one encounters a phenomenon there that might be described as deliberate “invisibility,” the conscious “concealment” of artefacts and writing. The volume examines this interplay of presence and invisibility using the example of sign-bearing artefacts in sacral spaces in various religions in the Near East and Europe.
