BYZANTINE & ISLAMIC ART & ARCHITECTURE

Jews, Christians, and Muslims all share a belief in the same God, yet their respective traditions in art differ
greatly from one another. In Ch. 4, we encounter early Christian art and the art of Byzantium. Ch. 5 introduces
some of the traditions of the art of the Islamic world.
What is the major difference between the art of these two traditions? What is the central reason for this
difference? In your discussion, include one or two examples from each which illustrate this difference.
