Notes

Abstract:
Examines the development of Kufic, an angular style of Arabic calligraphy, from the 9th to 12th century in Islamic manuscripts and its revival by scribes and artists in later periods, including architects. Neumeier challenges the idea that Arabic script is merely a vehicle for textual meaning and argues that different styles of Arabic calligraphy, especially Kufic, have the power to connote meaning outside of the text as an icon in and of itself. Beyond Islam, Christian artists admired Kufic's stylized beauty and often prized the ornamental calligraphy in their own manuscripts, painting, and architecture.
Venue:
