Chapter Summary

In a year when Display was chosen as the theme of the International Byzantine Congress, a reader could think of no better offering to this collection in honour of Jean-Michel Spieser than a look at chapter II,15 of the De Cerimoniis. One of the longest chapters of the De Cerimoniis, II,15 is made up of numerous sections. Whilst the reader of the first section of II,15 can entertain such an idealised concept of display through ceremonial order, in the sections which follow (15.2-11), where specific occasions during Constantine's reign are described, one sees all too clearly how the Byzantines went about showing off in actual practice before foreigners. For the sake of clarity, the chapter II,15 is divided into nineteen sections, and each section is explained in detail.

Keywords: ceremonial order; International Byzantine Congress; Jean-Michel Spieser
