Summary

"...When considering the present book, one must bear in mind the dispersion of the documentation it considers, largerly unpublished material. After all, one of the most intriguing aspects of research, is the reevalutation of existing documentation. This sometimes rather tedious job becomes, in this case, real detective work. Searches for documents scattered in several countries, in countless archives, and in several languages, turns into a fascinating inquiry into the nature of past research, one that leads to a new understanding of the monument itself."
(fomr foreword by Miljenko Jurkovic)


"L'extreme complexité du dossier de l'église cathédrale de Porec, l'insuffisance des rapports publiés, souvent dans des revues peu accesibles, leur dispersion liée à la diversité des intervenants et des administrations, l'importance de certains des documents retrouvés justifient amplement la recherche et la publication. Il sera aussi un précieux témoin d'un passé, somme toute prestigieux, de l'archéologie de l'Istrie."
