From Our Editors

Byzantine authors viewed their art as highly true to nature as a reading of the texts collected here will confirm. To the contemporary art lover and scholar, however, such their the Byzantine’s views of themselves are perplexing, as most see their art as abstract rather than naturalistic. This work provides unique insight into how the Byzantine’s saw themselves, and the world around them.
