Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John Lowden provides an authoritative account of early Christian and Byzantine art from the third century AD to the fall of Constantinople in 1453. From the grandest public buildings to the smallest personal items, it was and is an art of extraordinary directness, but also of mystery and transcendence. John Lowden explains how and why early Christian and Byzantine art was made and used and situates it within the controversies of its time.

Book News Annotation:

Explains how and why Early Christian and Byzantine art was made and used. A wealth of color photos of mosaics, paintings, buildings, and other art illustrate chapters on art before and after iconoclasm, the iconoclast controversy, and Byzantine art in a wider world. Includes a glossary and lists of key emperors and dates. Inspiring for anyone curious about the origins of Christian art. Part of a proposed line of some 130 books on art history for students and general readers.
