Paradisiacal Imagery in Early Islamic Art
Publisher: University of Toronto | ISBN: N/A | edition 1998 | PDF | 260 pages | 16,2 mb

This thesis considers the Qubbat al-Sakhrah's construction to have been a regional response, couched in a regional artistic vocabulary, to counter what was perceived to be a serious regional problem, the distracting effect of the beauties of Christian churches and, that `Abd al-Malik's text in the Qubbat al-Sakhrah reflects the ideological threat, by stating Christian beliefs and pointing out their inappropriateness for Muslims. It proposes that the Qubbat al-Sakhrah's ornament represents the Qur'an's numerous descriptions of Paradise as a wondrous garden of shady groves and trees bearing every kind of fruit. Byzantine art provided the model for the visualization of the paradisiacal imagery, and the art of the Sasanid empire contributed the fantastical, otherworldly elements that might be imagined of Paradise.
