This volume contains groundbreaking articles by eminent scholars in the field on the art and architecture of the Byzantine world from the tenth to the fifteenth centuries.
Stretching from Russia to the Mediterranean, the Byzantine world encompasses a multitude of distinct styles and areas, many of which are examined in this volume. Written by some of the most eminent scholars in the field, the studies deal with the architecture and art of the Eastern world from the tenth to the fifteenth centuries. Underpinned by iconography, style, reception and date, these essays attempt to contextualize the eastern world and the west, the Muslim and the Christian, the specific detail and the larger picture. Looking at many topics for the first time, these essays are destined to open the field of scholarship for future research in the area.
