The way people dressed in Antiquity, what kinds of fabrics they wore, what were the techniques they used, and how they decorated their clothes – all this is documented in the superb collection of Coptic textiles preserved in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, and other Czech and Moravian collections. The bulk of these historical textiles dates from the 3rd to the 12th century A.D. The book contains a selection of Egyptian textiles that are currently the only comprehensive testimony to textile production in ancient times, the technical prowess of textile makers and the artistic execution of textile patterns. Most of all, these artefacts provide evidence of the clothing culture in Late Antiquity and early Christianity in the former Roman Empire, in the broader context of Greco-Roman cultural traditions.

The publication was issued to accompany the exhibition held under the auspices of UNESCO at the Prague Castle, April – August, 2000.
