Drawing on extensive scholarly research as well as his own travels to the rock churches of Cappadocia and Cicilia, the monastic communities in the mountains of northern Greece and Yugoslavia, and the author illuminates the astounding works of art within a culture that celebrated art as material proof of their dominance over the Mediterranean states. 247 illus., 64 in color.
