Presenting the first formulation of the central subject, this volume challenges major assumptions long held by Western art historians and provides other way of thinking about, looking at, and understanding Byzantine art in its broadest geographic and chronological framework, from A.D. 300 to the early nineteenth century. The book provides a view for understanding the Byzantine conception of architectural forms and space and the corresponding intellectual underpinnings of their representation. Introduced by four essays, the catalogue divides the material as included in the exhibition into four categories identified as – generic, specific, and symbolic representations, and a final grouping entitled ‘From Earthly to Heavenly Jerusalem’. This volume addresses various approaches to depicting architecture in Byzantine art that contrast sharply with those of the Renaissance and subsequent Western artistic tradition.
