Florida State University Department of Art History The essays contained in ATHANOR are articles by graduate students on topics of art history and humanities.

Athanor and the Museum Press
In 1980 Professor François Bucher (University of Bern, Medieval Art) asked Allys Palladino-Craig (formerly of the variorum editions of The Collected Works of Stephen Crane, 10 vols., Fredson Bowers, Editor, University of Virginia Press) to take on the responsibility of general editor and publisher of the first volume of Athanor (1981). Professor Bucher served as faculty advisor until his retirement. During that time, Palladino-Craig won several grants for the publication, and in 1994 established the Museum Press of the Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts with Julienne T. Mason as principal editorial assistant and graphic designer. From 1998-2002, Patricia Rose served as faculty advisor to this annual journal, which is a project of the Museum Press. For volumes 26 - 27, Richard K. Emmerson, the Editor of Speculum from 1999 to 2006, served as co-editor.
