Book Description Condition: New. This is the magnificent catalogue of the landmark exhibition on Byzantium at the Royal Academy in London in 2008. It follows closely the structure of the exhibition, organising the pieces first chronologically for the earlier period, where artefacts are more scarce, and then by their context, taking in not only court, church and icons, but also the material culture of everyday secular living. The stars of the show were undoubtedly the icons from the monastery of St Catherine at Sinai, some from the sixth century, and the full colour photography does both them and the other pieces justice. With authoritative texts by nearly 100 leading scholars, the book tells the story of the Byzantine empire and its cultural development and displays its extraordinary artistic and cultural riches. More than 320 treasures drawn from monasteries, museums and institutions worldwide are illustrated and recorded. The icons, wall paintings, mosaics, manuscripts, ivories, metalwork and jewellery illustrated here reveal the distinct style and character of Byzantine art and its influence on both Europe and Islam. (Secondhand copies of this book are advertised elsewhere at more than double our new book price.). Seller Inventory # 2339
