She offers with her Chorography, for the first time in Byzantine studies, an important paradigm, Choros, a paradigm which has its roots deep in ancient practices and which, when unearthed, could explain the sacred space in Byzantium. This book reads Choros from an interdisciplinary perspective, incorporating anthropological, theological, and performative aspects. Byzantine chorography is the inscription of sacred space by the mystical dance, Choros. Chorography is intimately associated with hierotopy in spirit and vocation, for both aim to contribute to the work of unveiling the mechanism by which sacred space was made in Byzantium. Contents: 1. Choros : A paradigm of Ritual Performance in Antiquity and Early Christianity. 2. The Dance of Adam: The Anthropology of the Byzantine Image of the Choir of Dance. 3.
