Byzantine luxury objects have been neglected in research for a long time, despite the legendary reputation they already held during the Middle Ages. This volume analyzes the gold, silver and bronze ornaments of the 9th to early 13th Centuries in an interdisciplinary synopsis. An illustrated catalog presents some 170 dated objects, which are placed into a broader context through hundreds of comparative examples and the inclusion of visual and written sources.
The four Hort and numerous individual finds are examined in terms of materials and techniques, typology and iconography, style and ownership, and application and function. This provides not only insight into areas of everyday life, but, especially in the gold jewelry from the Preslav treasure, includes references to imperial regalia and representation, as well as diplomatic gift exchange in the Middle Ages. Overall, a solid foundation for the dating of context-less objects is provided. The book is indispensable for archaeologists, museum staff, and students and faculty in art history and archaeology.
