Writing as Talisman in Medieval Islamic Art
Around the year 1000, rounded scripts started to replace angular scripts in Islamic art and architecture. Scholarship on this transformation of Islamic art and epigraphy has focused on the replacement of one by the other, whilst the change is more of a displacement than a replacement, with cursive, rounded hands coexisting with angular scripts in a new symbiosis. This lecture explores this phenomenon, especially as expressed on architectural facades of the time.
