"Each year sees more and more travelers descending on the shores of the eastern Mediterranean. Of these certain proportion comes solely for the sunshine and the beachesnbut a majority, I think, are prepared, or in some cases eager, for cultural distraction. Hitherto this has been largely provided by the ruins of classical antiquity, temples and theatres, shaft graves and beehive tombs, but some among them there may be who feel a certain curiosity about the inumerable Byzantine churches which every word.the landscape; or, excited by such celebrated masterpieces as Daphne and Hosious Lukas, which are now days included in most of the package tours, would wish to know more of the civilization which produced them...." - Foreword from Sailing To Byzantium: An Architectural Companion
