Chapter Summary

Jean-Michel Spieser's modesty is even better known than the extraordinary range of topics in late antique and Byzantine art and archaeology on which he has written. More or less detailed reports on the receptions of the visitors are offered by the Byzantine Book of Ceremonies and continue to excite scholarly controversy. Francois' awareness of a world spatially and chronologically beyond that treated in most of the papers in this book is also the first to consider the topic known to bibliographers as the "Wechselwirkung der byzantinischen Kunst". Finally, on a personal note, the author's gratitude to Kimberly Ivancovich, his research assistant, without whom the book would never have come to pass; and especially to Arietta Papaconstantinou for being such a gracious co-editor.

Keywords: Byzantine art; Jean-Michel Spieser
