Art of Kosovo: The Sacred Land

Front Cover
Monacelli Press, 1998 - Architecture - 256 pages
"The Balkan Region of Kosovo, near Albania, was in the Middle Ages a center of exceptional artistic activity. Closely bound to the sea and to European trading routes, this territory was deeply influenced by Byzantine lands to the east, resulting in a rich fusion of Eastern and Western styles. Today more than 1,300 of these medieval monuments remain; this volume represents the first time they are published for a Western audience."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
