Eunice Dauterman Maguire & Henry Maguire

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format] | Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"The treatment of the selected objects in this well presented and illustrated book leads to a new conclusion on a traditional problem of Byzantine art, the question of how far and in what ways its Medieval art connects with ancient Graeco-Roman art."--Robin Cormack, Journal of Hellenic Studies

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"The new corpus of material assembled here will surely spur further investigation into how all the Byzantine arts, broadly defined, served to reflect, reinforce, and construct a Byzantine worldview. Merely by gathering together so much 'unofficial' art, the Maguires have done a huge service. Even more impressive is their successful attempt to make sense of this disparate body of material by interpreting it consistently, yet flexibly, in relation to the familiar 'official' arts. Byzantine art history, and especially the teaching of Byzantine art history, will never be the same."--Linda Safran, University of Toronto

"Impeccably referenced and beautifully illustrated, Other Icons opens up a new side of Byzantine art at the height of its creativity."--Carolyn Connor, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
