This collection of articles demonstrates that iconography was arguably more important to the Byzantines than to any other culture. Divided into five sections, the papers discuss manuscript illumination, the religious use of pictures, the role of pictures in the instruction of the liturgy, hagiography and iconography on religious objects such as amulets.
