have intrigued believers and visitors since their making between the fifth and the seventh century. This book

in the relevant liturgical context by people living in late Antiquity. Several comparative examples integrate the
mosaics in the frame of late Roman art. Written fluently on the basis of current state of research, the volume thus
provides valuable new insight in one of the most fascinating Sets of images of early Christian times. The mosaics
were last Subject to extensive investigation 40 years ago.
