For the people of Byzantium, their architectural works, frescoes, mosaics, ivories, chalices, bejeweled gospel covers and many other opulent works of art were the material proof of their greatness and power over the Mediterranean states.The vast range of these riches is illustrated in this complete account of Byzantine art from the reign of Justinian to the fall of Constantinople.David Talbot Rice, one of the greatest authorities on Byzantine art, traveled as far afield as the rock churches of Cappadocia and Cilicia, the tufa monuments of Armenia and Georgia, and the thirteenth-century ceramic factories of Bulgaria, now buried in the alluvial mud of the Danube. His book is a masterly survey of an art of magnificence and power that belonged to a great and sophisticated society

The art of Byzantium : text and notes by David Talbot Rice( Book )

27 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Something of the Hellenic Spirit was reborn in the Eastern Roman Empire - later known as Byzantium - while the Western Empire crumbled under the blows of barbarian invaders. For a thousand years thereafter its great capital, Constantinople, remained the center of a brilliant, sophisticated society, and an art of magnificence and power. We have come to know Byzantine art chiefly in examples remote from the capital; until a short time ago, for example, the glowing gold-and-colored-glass mosaics of Santa Sophia were obscured by whitewash. This book now spreads before the reader the Byzantine art of Constantinople itself in its incomparable elegance and perfection, including the fascinating buildings, mosaics, murals, and sculptures, as well as smaller treasures that cannot be moved because of their fragility or sacredness. In the introduction the author, a distinguished authority, traces the development of Byzantine art with the penetration and sensitivity born of a lifetime of scholarship. In addition, he discusses at some length each of the illustrated objects and buildings. The photographs - many reproduced in full color - were made by Max Hirmer, who is noted for his ability to bring out the qualities present in works of art. These two great authorities, between them, have created an impressive and notable contribution to art literature."--
