Piccirillo, Michele. The Mosaics of Jordan. Amman: American Center for Oriental Research (ACOR), 1993.
For more than 100 hundred years, archaeological explorations in the region have been uncovering remains of buildings, chiefly of the Byzantine and early Islamic periods, with mosaics of extraordinary richness and variety. The decorations of these mosaics are of great interest to students of art, religion and society during these periods.
Father Michelle Piccirillo has been intensively and passionately engaged in the work of discovery, research and publication in Jordan. This publication covers all of present day Jordan systematically, region by region and site by site. Thus providing, with astonishing detail and artistic beauty, a wealth of information on the people who commissioned them.
