I’d like to start a thread collecting the missing concepts for Christian saints that are depicted in a non-narrative context.
Therefore one can use the section “11HH(…)” for female and “11H(…)” for male saints.
If the depicted saint isn’t among the existing concepts, one can put her/his NAME in the notification like this:
While some saints seem to appear rarely, in most cases these saints are depicted many times, so it is most likely that other cataloguers will face the same problem of a missing saint in Iconclass during the work on their collections.
So I guess that a list of these saints in this forum might be helpful to share the need of further concepts to be added in the Iconclass.
I’ll start this list with some saints I’d suggest to be in the 11H / 11HH section. Please feel free to comment and add your persons, too!
The NAME suggestions I chose use the English dictions that I found in Wikidata and the Lexikon Christlicher Ikonographie (LCI).. To underline this I provide the URL of the saint’s Wikidata object. I also give a sample picture of the saint to illustrate my aim.
The suggested descriptions follow the entries in the LCI as well.
