Synopsis:

This groundbreaking volume explores the epochal transformations and unexpected continuities in the Byzantine Empire from the seventh to the ninth century. As the period opened, the Empire's southern provinces—the vibrant, diverse areas of North Africa and the eastern Mediterranean—were at the crossroads of trade routes reaching from Spain to China. These regions experienced historic upheavals when their Christian and Jewish communities encountered the emerging Islamic world, and by the ninth century, an unprecedented cross-fertilization of cultures had taken place.

This extraordinary age is brought vividly to life by leading international scholars, their writings accompanied by sumptuous illustrations of the period's most notable arts and artifacts. Resplendent images of authority, religion, and trade—embodied in precious metals, brilliant textiles, fine ivories, elaborate mosaics, manuscripts, and icons, many of them never before published—highlight the dynamic dialogue between the rich array of Byzantine styles and the evolving Islamic aesthetic. With its masterful exploration of two centuries that would shape the emerging medieval world, Byzantium and Islam provides a revelatory interpretation of a period with profound ramifications for the modern era.

About the Author: Helen C. Evans is Mary and Michael Jaharis Curator for Byzantine Art in the Department of Medieval Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Brandie Ratliff is research associate for Byzantine Art in the Department of Medieval Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Book Description Diese großartige Publikation zur Ausstellung im Metropolitan Museum hat die epochalen Veränderungen und erstaunlichen Kontinuitäten im Byzanz des 7. bis zum 9. Jahrhunderts zum Thema. Zu Beginn dieses Zeitraumes waren die südlichen Provinzen, die höchst lebendigen und prosperierenden Gebiete in Nordafrika und an den Küsten des Mittelmeeres, die Knotenpunkte des Handels von Spanien bis nach China. Diese Regionen erlebten einen historischen Umbruch, als die christlichen und jüdischen Gesellschaften mit der aufkommenden islamischen Welt zusammentrafen. Hier befruchteten sich diese verschiedenen Kulturen auf einzigartige Weise gegenseitig. Führende internationale Experten ermöglichen einen umfassenden Einblick in diese Zeit, die lebendig wird durch die präsentierten Objekte, prächtige Manifestationen von Macht, Religion und Handel. Zu entdecken sind feinste Elfenbeinarbeiten, wunderschöne Stoffe, kunstvolle Mosaiken, Manuskripte und Ikonen, viele davon noch nie zuvor publiziert. (Text engl., Yale) 23,5 x 30,5 cm, 400 S., 470 farbige Abb., geb. Seller Inventory # 562580
