New Light on Old Glass: Recent Research on Byzantine Mosaics and Glass

SKU: 0861591794

Edited by Chris Entwistle and Liz James

Mosaics are perhaps the most outstanding examples of Byzantine art to survive, yet we know little about how they were made. The papers in this volume seek to provide answers to central quations about artistic practices in glassmaking and mosaics, and will also feed information and analysis into wider debates about the nature of trade and exchange within the Mediterranean during this period. This book brings together a range of leading international scholars to discuss the most recent research in the field of Byzantine glass and mosaics in an interdisciplinary context, ranging from art history to physics to Byzantine studies.
