Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Court Ceremonies and Rituals of Power in Byzantium and the Medieval Mediterranean: Comparative Perspectives contains the table of contents, the acknowledgments, and a list of contributors, maps and illustrations. The book explores the triumphal entries of John II and Manuel I in Antioch in 1138 and 1159, several meetings with Frankish lords, Rainald de Châtillon's deditio as a case study for conflict resolution in Byzantine-western relations, and the famous 1196 Christmas reception of emissaries sent by Emperor Henry VI as an example for the construction of a failed ritual in western and Byzantine historiography.

Keywords: Byzantine historiography; Frankish lords; Medieval Mediterranean; Rainald de Châtillon's deditio
