Editorial Reviews


'This book is a welcome addition to the history of Byzantine dress. It presents a concise coverage of the Middle Byzantine period (eighth to twelfth centuries) using paintings (both frescoes and illustrated manuscripts) as its main evidence...It will be a good addition to the libraries of Byzantine historians and dress historians.' - Medieval Clothing and Textiles

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed this book very much. The only criticism I have is I wish it had a bunch of color plates in it so we can SEE more of what is described. But the descriptions are fantastic and highly useful. I cannot recommend this book enough. It is a must-have book for anyone interested in secular clothing in the middle Byzantine period.
