History

Founded in 1917 by Charles Rufus Morey, the Index is a thematic and iconographic index of early Christian and medieval art objects, primarily before 1400 CE. The original card file with photographs held in the Department of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University. Additional copies are located at: Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, D.C.; The Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles; and the Library of Arts and Humanities, Utrecht University, Holland. A fourth copy is still housed in the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana in Rome, Italy, but has not been maintained since 2005. Since 1991, the Index has also been available online: http://ica.princeton.edu/.
