More About This Textbook

Overview

Seventeen contributions written by an international group of scholars in the fields of Byzantine and modern Greek language and literature, archaeology, ancient history, and other fields explore the ways in which rhetoric functioned in Byzantine society: as a tool for the effective communication of ideas and ideologies but at times also a barrier inhibiting the expression of real feelings and daily realities. Essays are organized into five main sections: the uses of rhetoric in Byzantium; its public uses; literature and rhetoric; rhetoric and historiography; and rhetoric and visual images. Includes quite a few good quality b&w illustrations. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
