"Bogdanovic's study of Byzantine ciboria is an impressive example of scholarship. The research and documentation of the large corpus of ciboria is meticulous and will be the starting place for all future scholarship on this particular type of church furnishing. In addition, her interpretation of the ciboria as a type of micro-architecture raises our level of understanding about their form and function within the broader contexts of church design and its symbolism as well as the liturgy performed under their canopies." -- Mark J. Johnson, Brigham Young University
