Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Theodore Psalter is one of the most valuable illuminated manuscripts to survive from the Byzantine Empire. One of only a few "fixed points" guiding the historian's understanding of Byzantine art and society, the Theodore Psalter's illumination is a uniquely rich source of insight into monastic organization, spirituality, book production, and a host of other aspects of Byzantine life.<P>This facsimile CD-ROM version of the Psalter, produced from the original text held in the British Library Rare Books Collection, offers unprecedented, virtual hands-on access to this precious volume. The innovative electronic format provides a complete display of all 416 pages, with magnified views of every illustration as well as a fully searchable text in the original Greek and in English translation. Complete with hyperlinked descriptions and full identifications of figures on every page, the facsimile is accompanied by three scholarly essays, by Charles Barber and by John Lowden of the Courtauld Institute of Art, London.<P>Combining cutting-edge technology with first-rate scholarship, this electronic facsimile of the Theodore Psalter serves as an indispensable tool for art historians and affords a fascinating opportunity for other adventurous readers to interact with a rare treasure.
