The Old Testament in Byzantium


 Product Description

Editors: Robert S. Nelson and Paul Magdalino

Format: Paperback

Pages: 340

This volume contains selected papers from a December 2006 Dumbarton Oaks symposium which touched on the reception of the Old Testament in the Byzantine East. References to the Old Testament are ubiquitous in Byzantine literature and art, and the patriarchs, prophets, and other holy personages of the Old Testament served as role models. The Old Testament connected Byzantium not only with its Christian neighbors but with Jewish and Muslim peoples as well. This widespread phenomenon has never received systematic investigation. The Old Testament in Byzantium considers the manifestations of the holy books in Byzantine manuscript illustration, architecture, and government, as well as in Jewish Bible translations and the construction of Muhammad’s character.
