Early Christian and Byzantine Architecture

'The scope of this book', to quote The Times Library Supplement, 'is greater than that of any other work on the subject.' By now a classic, it presents in a sinble volume a coherent overall view of the history and the changing character of Early Christian and Byzantine architecture, from Rome (including the early St. Peter's) and Milan to North Africa, from Constantinople to Greece and the Balkans, and from Egypt and Jerusalem to the villages and monasteries of Syria, Asia Minor, Armenia, and Mesopotamia. For this fourth edition, Professor Krautheimer, with a colleague, Professor Curcic of Princeton University, has undertaken as thorough a revision as the previous ones, and the book, with the help of some 700 information-packed footnotes and over 400 illustrations, has been brought right up to date with the latest research.
