The Web Site


The browse pages give access to lists of all the cataloguing terms which have been applied to images on the Gothic Ivories web site. Navigating around the browse lists is a way of getting a bird’s eye view of what is on the site.

Unlike searching, which tends to be a hit or miss affair, browsing these cataloguing terms allows you to home in on a subject, without the feeling that you may be missing interesting material simply because you haven’t used the right search term.

Each term in each list is followed by a number in brackets. This number is the number of images which have been catalogued using that term. That number is also a link: if you click it, you will see all the relevant images listed in the Results page.

The browse categories available to you are:

  • Current Location: a list of all the locations of objects featured in images on the site.
  • Subject: a list of broad iconographical categories under which the images have been classified.
