BETWEEN CONSTANTINOPLE AND ROME: AN ILLUMINATED BYZANTINE GOSPEL BOOK (PARIS GR. 54) AND THE UNION OF CHURCHES. Kathleen Maxwell. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2014. 390 pp. with 88 ills. (33 col.). 25 x 18 cm. LC 2013-35991 ISBN 9781409457442 In English.
Publisher's description: This is a study of the artistic and political context that led to the production of Bibliotheque Nationale de France, codex grec 54, one of the most ambitious and complex manuscripts of the Byzantine era. Kathleen Maxwell's multi-disciplinary approach includes codicological and paleographical evidence together with New Testament textual criticism, artistic and historical analysis. She concludes that Paris 54 was designed to eclipse its contemporaries and to physically embody a new relationship between Constantinople and the Latin West.
