    Spanning more than a millennium from the Roman Empire of Late Antiquity to the early Renaissance, Byzantine art shifted away from the naturalistic Roman style towards the more abstract images which we recognize as typical of religious icons. This splendid volume is arranged chronologically, displaying more than 260 items to illustrate the achievements of the Byzantine tradition not only in icon-painting but across a wide range of other artforms - coins, silverware, embroidery, manuscripts, mosaics, wall painting and church architecture.
