Though annoyingly there is a shortage of Byzantine paintings. Probably because the neo-classical folk didn’t think much of that period. The Byzantines got a very bad reputation and were ignored for a very long time, well into the 20th century. Probably Norwich is the real person who changed that–although Asimov also wrote a history of Byzantium that I need to find and read. Comments are closed.
