Marcus Rautman, Professor, Late Antique and Byzantine Art and Archaeology. Ph.D., Indiana University.
RautmanM@missouri.edu
Research Interests: The interplay of society and visual culture underlies my study of the early Middle Ages, especially during periods of political transition. The dynamics of cultural adaptation are of particular interest in understanding the east Mediterranean region on both urban and rural scales. Later Byzantine Macedonia presents one such artistic environment that survives in churches, monumental decoration, and manuscripts. Contemporary documents allow us to explore the role played by individual patrons and social groups in sponsoring an architectural revival in Thessaloniki in the early 14th century. Located in western Asia Minor, Lydian Sardis offers a contrasting view of urban life in late antiquity. In all these research settings I have tried to combine disciplinary methods-history, archaeology, and art history-to provide a fuller background for understanding the monuments and people of the past.

Anne Rudloff Stanton, Associate Professor, Medieval and Northern Renaissance Art. Ph.D., University of Texas at Austin.
StantonA@missouri.edu

She is also working on a study that looks broadly at architectural projects, manuscripts, and other objects that have been connected to her.

Mickey Abel, Assocaite Professor. Ph.D., University of Texas at Austin.
abel@unt.edu
Research Interests: Her scholarly interests center around medieval architectural space-its historical analysis, its contextual setting, its liturgical and experiential perception, and its geographical determinants.

Some of this work has been undertaken in collaboration with the departments of Geography and Archaeology employing GIS technology. Her work in France examines the spatial/geographical relationship between the Abbey of Maillezais and its parish churches within the ancient Gulf de Picton and in the context of the historical events surrounding the Peace of God movement, as well as the political agenda of the Duke of Aquitaine, his wife, and descendants, and the social/economic life within the monastery and its landed domain.

Research Interests: Danielle Joyner is a medievalist whose general interests range from the combination of mythological and religious imagery on the Franks Casket to the patterns created by shadows cast on sundials, and from representations of historical lineages to modern discussions of medieval image theory.  Her current project examines how aspects of time, an intangible phenomenon, are given shape and form in different genres of manuscript imagery.  This project focuses on the twelfth-century “Hortus Deliciarum” (Garden of Delights), a manuscript made for the female community of canonnesses at Hohenbourg, and draws from, among others, astronomical, biblical, calendrical, and classical visual and textual traditions.  She is interested in the visual intersections among scientific, biblical, and literary realms, and her future project will examine the cosmos and its workings as it appears in Hildegard of Bingen’s illuminated works.

Marcus Rautman, Professor, Late Antique and Byzantine Art and Archaeology. Ph.D., Indiana University.
RautmanM@missouri.edu
Research Interests: The interplay of society and visual culture underlies my study of the early Middle Ages, especially during periods of political transition. The dynamics of cultural adaptation are of particular interest in understanding the east Mediterranean region on both urban and rural scales. Later Byzantine Macedonia presents one such artistic environment that survives in churches, monumental decoration, and manuscripts. Contemporary documents allow us to explore the role played by individual patrons and social groups in sponsoring an architectural revival in Thessaloniki in the early 14th century. Located in western Asia Minor, Lydian Sardis offers a contrasting view of urban life in late antiquity. In all these research settings I have tried to combine disciplinary methods-history, archaeology, and art history-to provide a fuller background for understanding the monuments and people of the past.

Anne Rudloff Stanton, Associate Professor, Medieval and Northern Renaissance Art. Ph.D., University of Texas at Austin.

She is also working on a study that looks broadly at architectural projects, manuscripts, and other objects that have been connected to her.

Mickey Abel, Assocaite Professor. Ph.D., University of Texas at Austin.
abel@unt.edu
Research Interests: Her scholarly interests center around medieval architectural space-its historical analysis, its contextual setting, its liturgical and experiential perception, and its geographical determinants. Dr. Abel’s current research is bifurcated between work in Northern Spain and Western France.

Some of this work has been undertaken in collaboration with the departments of Geography and Archaeology employing GIS technology. Her work in France examines the spatial/geographical relationship between the Abbey of Maillezais and its parish churches within the ancient Gulf de Picton and in the context of the historical events surrounding the Peace of God movement, as well as the political agenda of the Duke of Aquitaine, his wife, and descendants, and the social/economic life within the monastery and its landed domain.

Research Interests: Danielle Joyner is a medievalist whose general interests range from the combination of mythological and religious imagery on the Franks Casket to the patterns created by shadows cast on sundials, and from representations of historical lineages to modern discussions of medieval image theory.  Her current project examines how aspects of time, an intangible phenomenon, are given shape and form in different genres of manuscript imagery.  This project focuses on the twelfth-century “Hortus Deliciarum” (Garden of Delights), a manuscript made for the female community of canonnesses at Hohenbourg, and draws from, among others, astronomical, biblical, calendrical, and classical visual and textual traditions.  She is interested in the visual intersections among scientific, biblical, and literary realms, and her future project will examine the cosmos and its workings as it appears in Hildegard of Bingen’s illuminated works.
