Nimbus, Form Of Aureole, Has'
Come From Ancient Astrology
By JEWEL W. WUERFEL
The origin and history of the
nimbus, a form of the aureole, was the
subject of a paper given by Alexander
P. Ruthven, Grad., yesterday in a
course in Islamic art taught by Prof.
By definition an aureole is a lumi-
nous area surrounding a person of un-
usual importance, and can be pre-
sumed to have originally been re-
served for dieties, according to Ruth-
ven. It is generally oval in shape
when surrounding the entire figure.
When it is merely a disc around the
head it goes under the name of nim-
bus. When the oval shape and the
nimbus are united in one the com-
bination is known as the glory. He
added that in Christian iconography
the nimbus is generally known as the
Ruthven believes that it can be
safely assumed that the probable
origin of the nimbus lies in an as-
trological connotation: representa-
tives of the sun and moon being useds
as a symbol to glorify some person.
In Egypt the sun disc is found on
the heads of Hathor, Isis, Khnum
Suchos and Sah met.

lieves that it is safe to say that the
aureale, as we know it, comes from
Egypt. From here it very probably
was taken by the Early Greeks. Later
it passed to Mesopotamia and India,
returning again later to the Byzantine
School in slightly different form,
namely the glory.
Ruthven illustrated his paper with
slides of a few examples of the nim-
bus in different countries and cen-
turies. It is employed by Christian
artists from the fourth century to the
present day. Probably the oldest
example of Christ with a nimbus is
the mosaic at Sants Puclenziana in
Rome of the enthroned Christ, be-
longing to the later half of the fourth
century. This nimbus is of gold with
a green border.
Found In Coptic Art
The nimbus can be found in Coptic
art and still earlier in Slavic pagan
art and Buddhistic art. It is also
found on coins of some Indian Kings
from 58 B.C. to 41 A.D. Examples of
the nimbus are seen in Roman ar
in Trojan on the Arch of Constan-
ine and in Antoninus Pius on the re-
verse of a medal. A Greek example
is on a vase painting from the Tomb
of Canosa representing Aurora and
_he Morning Star.
Ruthven pointed out in his paper
'hat the aureole is mentioned by Ho-
mer in the Illiad and the Odessy
and also by Euripedes and others.
