From Rome to the Byzantine Empire and the Middle Ages ad 4501500

The Middle Ages between the 5th and 7th centuries, on the other hand, was not an influential period in the development of fashion. Although the fashion of the early period of this era was somewhat influenced by the Byzantine period, the style adopted was mostly hideous. The jewellery, for example, compared to the Byzantine period was pale. The events of the Middle Ages were focused more on the development of national monarchies and political systems than on fashion and society. Furthermore several conflicts between nations, notably between England and France, also distracted the society. This period witnessed the emergence of universities, the construction of cathedrals and churches and the formation of modern Europe which were viewed as sources of national pride.

Ecclesiastical Dress and Globalization

The counterpart to simplicity of ecclesiastical dress produced by vestment makers in the West, which in the Roman Catholic Church was associated with the reforms instituted by Vatican II, is seen in the appearance of individual national churches, whose identities are expressed, in part, through use of local materials in vestments. The basis for the local development of ecclesiastical dress is found in the General Instruction on the Roman Missal In Nigeria, there has been a shift from the purchase of ecclesiastical dress, mainly from Great Britain to the production of vestments in Nigeria itself, using locally woven narrow-strip cloth and batik-dyed textiles. Chasubles, mitres, and stoles, machine-embroidered with depictions of scenes and texts from the Old and New Testament as well as with more abstract shapes and symbols, may be produced by individual specialists or by nuns working in convent workshops. One woman, Mrs. Anne Salubi of Ilorin, a university-trained artist, is renowned...

Dress and Social Change

These groups, we can expect to find a change in gender roles. A good example is that of the change in the dress of Roman Catholic priests and nuns following the changes instituted by Vatican II in the 1960s. The changes were more pronounced for nuns as their roles within the Church dramatically changed so too did their dress. Additionally, when roles are restrictive, we can expect to see a restriction in women's dress, in the form of either dress codes or physically restrictive clothing. Occasionally a reciprocal relationship occured, in which the indigenous group more willingly took on the dress of the more powerful religious group. Strategic shifts from traditional dress to western dress among the Dakota tribes in Minnesota were somewhat voluntary. Similarly, the immigration of European Jews to America led to many Jews using dress as a means of blending into the larger society. On the other hand, Hasidic Jews chose to reflect their ethnicity by retaining fossilized fashion to...

Between East and West

Yet the influence of Rome slowly faded. In the seventh century C.E. the official language of the empire was changed to Greek. The church was less involved in creating rules for people than it had The Church of Hagia Sophia was built in Constantinople by Byzantine emperor Justinian in the sixth century. It still stands in Istanbul, Turkey. Reproduced by permission of Getty Images. The mixture of Eastern and Western influences also could be seen in the many churches and monasteries built during the years of the Byzantine Empire. Such religious structures were built throughout the empire, but none was greater than the Church of Hagia Sophia (also known as Saint Sophia), built in Constantinople by the emperor Justinian (483-565) in the sixth century C.E. The massive church, with its huge central dome and many spires, took ten thousand workers five years to build. It still stands in the modern Turkish city of Istanbul, the new name for the old capital. This and other churches have led...

Historical and Cross Cultural Examples

6th Century Clothing

The origins of ecclesiastical dress have been debated, with some attributing early forms to garments worn by Jewish religious leaders, while others have argued that these vestments derived from everyday Roman dress worn during the early Christian era. In the early 2000s, the latter explanation prevails. Different forms of ecclesiastical dress have developed with the expansion and elaboration of the Western and Eastern Churches. The forms and meanings of ecclesiastical dress have changed over time and have variously been used to separate the mundane from the spiritual, to emphasize the glory of God through beautiful raiment, to express religious hu mility and piety, and to identify individuals within the church hierarchy. Depictions of early Christians in the Catacombs of St. Domitilla in Rome include a painting of the Good Shepherd, wearing a white tunic or tunica, a rectangle of white material made either from linen or wool with a girdle holding it in place. The secular use of this...

Person who extols the virtues of modest living. The cult of simplicity is one advocated by many religions and spiritual sects as a route to inner peace and well-being. Drawing on a breadth of references, Bruce Chatwin states, 'Look at the empty churches of Sanraedam, the buildings of the Shakers, the piano music of Satie, or Cezanne's final watercolours Emptiness in architecture - or empty space - is not empty, but full yet to realize this fullness requires the most exacting standards.'8

Christopher Breward

Definition of the more cultural scope of new art historical approaches, they state that when an article analyzes the images of women in paintings rather than the qualities of the brushwork, or when a gallery lecturer ignores the sheen of the Virgin Mary's robe for the Church's use of religious art in the counter-reformation, the new art history is casting its shadow .2 down the notion of culture as a neutral descriptive category in the first place. T.S. Eliot in a famous passage from his Notes towards the Definition of Culture could state categorically that culture includes all the characteristic activities and interests of a people Derby day, Henley Regatta, Cowes, the Twelfth of August, a cup final, the pin table, the dart board, Wensleydale cheese, boiled cabbage cut into sections, beetroot in vinegar, nineteenth century gothic churches, and the music of Elgar. 7 Ten years later at the birth of cultural studies in Britain as a specific discipline, Raymond Williams rejected this...

My Magic Fashion

Magic does not work for its own sake it is legitimated by a system.628 The treatment of the mannequin will be our example in analysing the magical act of window dressing. The dressed mannequin has sacred ancestors.629 Statues dressed in real clothes were placed in temples and churches, and they were used in processions as well. We can thus show that there is a tradition of using statues for magical purposes. Hubert and Mauss give two examples of magical treatments in relation to spring rites
