Approaches to Byzantine Architecture and Its Decoration: Studies in Honor of Slobodan Ćurčić
Mark Joseph Johnson, Robert G. Ousterhout, Amy Papalexandrou
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2012 - Architecture - 309 pages
The fourteen essays in this collection demonstrate a wide variety of approaches to the study of Byzantine architecture, a reflection of both newer trends and traditional scholarship in the field. Three papers examine Early Christian monuments, two of which expand the inquiry into their architectural afterlives. Others discuss later monuments in Byzantine territory and monuments in territories related to Byzantium such as Serbia, Armenia, and Norman Italy. No Orthodox Church being complete without interior decoration, two papers discuss issues connected frescoes in late medieval Balkan churches. Finally, one study investigates the continued influence of Byzantine palace architecture long after the fall of Constantinople.
