Summary

This volume, dedicated to Ivan Matejčić, a distinguisehd Croatian art historian and conservator, in honour of his 70th birthday, contains thirty articles covering the fields of art history, archaeology and history. These are all original contributions to debates regarding mostly the period from Late Antiquity to the Renaissance, but not disregarding the Baroque and thus reflecting the broad interests of the celebrant. While several contributions discuss themes related to Dalmatia or Italy, the foucs of the volume is on istria, the meeting point of Central, Mediterranean and Southeast Europe, which was also the region to which Ivan Matejčić dedicated most of his outstanding work. Therefore it will, withouth doubt, find an interested readership among scholars from many different counries and fields of interest, Byzantine and Carolingian Europe being only the two most prominent. - Prof Neven Budak, University of Zagreb
