This book is about the Byzantine monuments of Istanbul, most notably, Haghia Sophia. The remains of the land and sea walls, the Hippodrome, imperial palaces, commemorative columns, reservoirs and cisterns, an aqueduct, a triumphal archway, a fortified port, and twenty churches are also described in chronological order in the context of their times. These "monuments" are viewed in relationship to the political, religious, social, economic, intellectual and artistic developments of the Byzantine dynasties.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"Byzantine Monuments is a well conceived and well executed survey, and as an introduction to the surviving remnants of Constantinople it is a more than adequate source; it is not particularly useful for in-depth scholarship as it is somewhat lacking in critical analysis, but rather should serve as a starting point." - Edward McCormick Schoolman, History, UCLA
