Cover image of Studies in Iconography: a medieval manuscript page with a large initial A on a black background"Studies in Iconography" (ISSN 0148-1029, e-ISSN 2693-8456) is an annual journal hosted by the Index of Medieval Art and published in partnership with Medieval Institute Publications. It presents innovative work on the meaning of images from the medieval world broadly construed, between the fourth century to the year 1600. Past articles have addressed subjects as diverse as Byzantine fresco programs, Carolingian architectural diagrams, Gothic rent books, Jewish ritual images, and Islamicate stucco ornament. We encourage article submissions that offer interdisciplinary, theoretical, or critical perspectives. Works of both established and emerging scholars are welcome. Reviews of selected books on iconography and art history are included in every volume.

MIP also publishes the journal's associated book series, Studies in Iconography: Themes and Variations.
