Index of Medieval Art


Welcome to the Index of Medieval Art website. Founded in 1917 by Charles Rufus Morey, “The Index,” as it is often called, has evolved over the past near-century from a modest collection of painstakingly catalogued photographs into one of the most important archives of medieval iconography in existence. Both our physical collection of print records and images on the Princeton University campus and our expanding online database offer valuable resources for scholars of medieval visual culture. We encourage you to browse our site and database, and to consult with our research staff to learn more about how the Index can serve your interests.
