In the words of André Grabar, “Byzantium saw men die for images”, a phrase that underlines the remarkable place of images in Byzantine civilization. The ties between sculpted images and imperial propaganda, the Byzantine’s attitude to ancient art, Byzantine portraits, portrayals of the emperor, donors, the personality of patrons and recipients of works, iconoclasm, and the list goes on – these are just a few of the entries from a repertoire of proposals on a subject of unfailing interest.
