This magnificent publication, the catalogue of a landmark exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London 2008, illustrates and records some 320 Byzantine treasures drawn from monasteries, museums and institutions worldwide.  At the height of its power, Byzantium extended throughout much of southern Europe, the Balkans, Anatolia and the Middle East.  Authoritative texts by nearly 100 leading scholars trace the history and cultural development of more than a thousand years of Byzantine art and spectacular artefacts—from icons, wall paintings, mosaics, manuscripts to ivories, metalwork and item of jewelry—reveal the distinct style of Byzantine art and its influence on the European and Islamic traditions.
