Masterclass in Byzantine Mosaics (Part 1)

Robert Horvat, frequent contributor and aficionado of Byzantine history, has created this wonderful article focusing on some of the greatest art the Byzantine civilization gave us: its magnificent mosaics. These incredible murals and pictures have survived for centuries and can provide an amazing window into the history, theology and worldview of the Byzantine world almost like no other source can. Robert breaks down several of the major early Byzantine mosaics, gives some history and some interpretation–really great stuff!
