Included are classifications and discussions of the miniatures, author portraits, illustrations of narrative, and theological statements, as well as full descriptions of the text and annotations. With illustrations of its splendid silver-gilt covers and of all its miniatures, this volume is a worthy addition to any Byzantine studies or early Christianity scholar's collection.

Christians under the Ottoman Turks

French and English Travellers in Greece and Anatolia (1615-1694)
ISBN: 978-1-59333-922-7
In the 17th century Britons left their country in vast numbers - explorers, diplomats, ecclesiastics, merchants, or simply “tourists.” Only the most intrepid ventured into the faraway lands of the Ottoman Empire. Their travel narratives, best-sellers in their day, provide an entertaining but also valuable testimony on the everyday life of Orthodox Christians and their coexistence with the Turks. Greek Christians, though living under the Ottoman yoke, enjoyed greater religious freedom than many of their brothers in Christian Europe. The travelers’ intellectual curiosity about Greece opened a window on the Orthodox Church, and paved the way for future dialogue.

Kassia the Nun in Context

The Religious Thought of a Ninth-Century Byzantine Monastic
ISBN: 978-1-61143-969-4
Kassia the Nun offers a unique glimpse into ninth-century Byzantium in the only woman whose works were included in the corpus of liturgical hymns. This volume explores Kassia’s thought on Christology, on gender, and on monasticism itself. It provides readers with an opportunity to know this woman of remarkable intellect, wit, and piety by drawing primarily on her own words. Kassia’s is one of the only female voices from ninth-century Byzantium and this volume accordingly examines her reflections on gender in the context of her society and concludes that she represents a perspective that might be described as feminist.
