Adrian Spooner, Classics for All A brilliant book ... accessible to both new and more experienced readers.

Michele Bacci, University of Fribourg, Switzerland Cormack's book is a masterpiece of synthesis. His book not only provides an elegantly written, thoughtful, and intelligent introduction to one of the most elusive, and often misapprehended artistic civilizations of the past, but also discloses and deconstructs the many biases and preconceived ideas that still influence our understanding of Byzantine tradition.

Liz James, Professor of History of Art, University of SUssex This is the best introduction/introductory book to Byzantine art and to perceptions of that art both ours and the Byzantines'. The structure remains the same but it has been updated with a subtle shift in emphasis, arguing for Byzantine art as a product of the Roman world. Its not a simple narrative but a questioning of how Byzantine art worked for its audiences.

Annabel Wharton, Duke University Review from previous edition The handbook of Byzantine Art for both lay readers and specialists.

David Buckon, The British Museum The reader is left with a powerful impression of how the Byzantines themselves must have looked upon the art that surrounded them.
