Byzantine Court Culture from 829 to 1204

£9.99

Product description

The imperial court in Constantinople has been central to the outsider's vision of Byzantium. The studies in this volume aim to provide a unified composition by presenting Byzantine courtly life in all its interconnected facets. One important theme that unites these studies is the attention paid to describing the effects of a change in the social makeup of the court during this period and the reflection of these changes in art and architecture. These changes in social composition, mentality, and material culture of the court demonstrate that, as in so many other aspects of Byzantine civilization, the image of permanence and immutability projected by the forms of palace life was more apparent than real. As this work seeks to show, behind the golden facade of ceremony, rhetoric, and art, there was constant development and renewal.

Paperback in great condition. Minimal shelfware. Smooth spine. Unmarked and crisp pages.
