Description
(Winner of a 2004 George Wittenborn Memorial Book Award; Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2005)

During the last centuries of the "Empire of the Romans," Byzantine artists created exceptional secular and religious works that had an enduring influence on art and culture. In later years, Eastern Christian centers of power emulated and transformed Byzantine artistic styles, the Islamic world adapted motifs drawn from Byzantium's imperial past, and the development of the Renaissance from Italy to the Lowlands was deeply affected by Byzantine artistic and intellectual practices. With more than 800 color illustrations, this spectacular book presents hundreds of objects from Byzantine artists and craftsmen from the late 13th through mid-16th centuries: sacred icons, luxuriously embroidered silk textiles, richly gilded metalwork, miniature icons of glass, precious metals and gemstone, and elaborately decorated manuscripts.

"There is no question that this book will be the standard reference on the period for years to come, particularly since the Mt. Sinai icons prominently featured here have finally emerged from the depths of their monastic retreat. This major undertaking involved the collaboration of so many learned people in such diverse areas of esoteric knowledge—a feat in itself. Essential."—Choice
