Fully-illustrated in colour and black and white, Images of the Mother of God complements the successful exhibition and catalogue of the 'Mother of God' exhibition at the Benaki Museum in Athens. It brings together the work of leading international authorities and younger scholars to provide a wide-ranging survey of how the 'Theotokos' was perceived in the Byzantine world. It embraces the disciplines of theologians and philologists, as well as art historians, traditional and feminist historians and social anthropologists. Images of the Mother of God will appeal not just to those interested in Byzantine art and culture, but to scholars of Western Europe in the Middle Ages who are looking for comparative materials in their own work.
