5.0 out of 5 stars Byzantine Art at its Eclectic Best, 19 April 2014

This review is from: The Glory of Byzantium and Early Christendom (Hardcover)
This book combines History and Art rather than it being an Art History. It is lavish from its concept to its realisation and powerfully beautiful. The mysteries of Orthodoxy are introduced to the reader by the beautiful images that are so breathtakingly presented. You can by books on Istanbul and its art, architecture and history but this edition surpasses the transition form Byzantine to Ottoman to present an eclectic view of the scope of Byzantine Orthodoxy through its art. If you only have one book on this topic make it this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT BYZANTIUM, 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Glory of Byzantium and Early Christendom (Hardcover)
This is the best illustrated book I've ever come across on early Christendom and Byzantium. The photographs are stunning, and very ably selected. It's the sort of book that will grow on you, as you delight in returning again and again to the meticulous detail both in the photos and in their description. Pure gold - and that's just the cover and the edges: a treasure-trove within. I almost was on the point of going on to say that it's worth its weight in gold!

It's really the source which I do expected. Excellent and informative pictures, proper text, good periodisation which helps a lot to go into the subject. Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Glory of Byzantium and Early Christendom, 2 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Glory of Byzantium and Early Christendom (Hardcover)
The book arrived in perfect condition, promptly. Online it looked good. I didn't expect it to be an art or history treatise, but th text was concise and interesting. However, the internal pictures were stunning and the production of the entire book is truly special. This is a real showpiece book. It would make a wonderful gift.
