Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The catalog of a major exhibition on Byzantium that just closed at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, this exquisitely produced volume contains essays by leading scholars that describe the objects exhibited and place them within a specific area of the Byzantine empire. Speros Vryonis Jr. leads off the collection with an essay on "Byzantine Society and Civilization." Other notable sections include Toli Kalavezou's "Luxury Objects," Jerry Folda's "Crusader Art," and S. Peter Crowe's "The Georgians." The editors' discussion of the culture of the period is quite thorough and offers new insights. The quality of the reproductions is very good, and both the extensive bibliography and the glossary are highly useful. One only wishes that the footnotes appeared at the bottom of the page rather than at the back of the volume. This work should be included in larger academic and public libraries.Martin Chasin, Adult Inst., Bridgeport, Ct.
Booknews
Serves as both visual and textual record of the exhibition of the same name, surveying the art of the Middle Byzantine period from the restoration of the use of icons by the Orthodox Church in 843 to the occupation of Constantinople by the Crusader forces from the West from 1204 to 1261. Conceived as a sequel to the 1976 exhibition "Age of Spirituality," which focused on the first centuries of Byzantium. Preceding the catalogue, 17 essays treat the historical context, religious sphere, and secular courtly realm of the empire, and the interactions between Byzantium and other medieval cultures. Abundantly illustrated. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
