Description

Edited by Helen C. Evans; With essays by Lyle Humphrey, Lisa Brody, Carol Snow, Edward Bleiberg, Steven Fine, Annie Labatt, Hieromonk Justin of Sinai, Larry Nees, Robert E. Schick, Alan Gampel, Arnold E. Franklin, and Gabriele Mietke

In 2012 the Metropolitan Museum of Art presented Byzantium and Islam: Age of Transition, a groundbreaking exhibition that explored the transformations and continuities in the Byzantine Empire from the 7th to the 9th century. During this time of historic upheaval, Christian and Jewish communities encountered the world of Islam, resulting in unprecedented cross-cultural exchange. The catalogue for Byzantium and Islam received the 2014 World Book Award as the best new book on Islamic studies, presented by the Islamic Republic of Iran's Ministry of Culture and Religious Guidance. This new volume expands upon the subject, bringing together eleven papers by internationally distinguished scholars delivered in symposia and Scholars' Days during the exhibition, with a new introduction by Helen C. Evans. These writings provide new information about the impact of Byzantine culture, both Christian and Jewish, during the development and early years of Islamic rule in the eastern Mediterranean and across North Africa, and reconsider traditional concepts about the origin of Islamic art.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the book - sorry I missed the exhibit This book contains a wide variety of well researched and sometimes poignant essays around this little-discussed period in art history. The photos are compelling as well. Now, I really must start planning to visit St. Catherine's Monastery in the Sinai! Bucket list...
