Pagėzimorja e Butrintit dhe mozaikėt e saj

Front Cover
Butrint Foundation, 2008 - Design - 95 pages
The Baptistery with its near-perfectly preserved mosaic floor is undoubtedly the most famous of the monument at Butrint. In this splendidly illustrated book, Mitchell analyses the narratives of salvation and rebirth inherent in its iconography and proposes interpretations for the ritual use of the building and its annexe. The study highlights the contextual relationships of the mosaics with the schools and artisans of the east Mediterranean and the ecclesiastic patronage of the commissioning, providing important insights for the rich body of mosaics found throughout Butrint.
