1. SEARCH BUTTON (at the top of the page):
If you set "options" for "Entire Page," the search will display each entire entry one-by-one. If it remains at "default," the search will display only the first line of each entry.
2. Boolean operators are allowed. "And" is assumed to exist between each word unless you enclose the phrase in square brackets. Thus, "Annunciation to the Virgin" will bring up all documents containing "annunciation" (including those to Joachim and Anna) and "Virgin." [Annunciation to the Virgin] will bring up all the documents under that phrase. The entries are catalogued according to the iconographic cycle, such as, "Life of the Virgin," so the square brackets will ease your search. If you are looking for "Christ, Infancy," a search request for "Christ Infancy" will bring up all documents which contain both Christ and Infancy. A more exact search would be for [Christ, Infancy]. Note the listings in Table of Authorities below.

List of Images linked to pictures N.B. There are few actual images linked to Apocicon's entries due to copyright restrictions. Many of those that are linked are through the courtesy of Christus Rex <http://www.christusrex.org>. Christus Rex is an excellent source for Christian art. However, we have many slides, taken from publications. An entry with a number in the field PHOTO[ catalogs for us the slide. If you want a JPEG sent to you of such an image, write to me at the above address or send an email to <email@example.com> or <firstname.lastname@example.org>.. Such images are for "fair use" only.
