Medieval Art, Illuminated Manuscripts, Medievalism, Historiography, Jewish-Christian Relations in the Middle Ages
Nina Rowe specializes in the art of northern Europe in the high and late Middle Ages (twelfth to fifteenth century). Her work examines images of Jews and Judaism in settings ranging from monumental cathedral façade sculpture to hand-held carved ivories. Her scholarship also addresses the production and reception of illuminated manuscripts in the medieval and modern eras. She is at work on a book on late medieval German illuminated World Chronicles (Weltchroniken).
Professor Rowe’s research has been supported by fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities (2016-17), the American Council of Learned Societies (2016-17), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2007-8).
