Marble has been a material of choice and a subject of reflection for millennia. Its geology, history, and economics are well known, but its aesthetics remain understudied. While the iconology of materials highlights their semantic properties, this volume contributes to a historical phenomenology and anthropology of materials. It brings together theoretical propositions and empirical case studies from Late Antiquity to the present.
