    Iconophilia

    By Francesca Dell'Acqua

    Through case studies examined in a comparative East-West approach, this book analyses how Byzantine iconoclasm (ca. 720s–843) impacted on the West and how it shaped a papal reaction in Rome.

    Papers from the 47th Spring Symposium of Byzantine Studies
