Product Overview

Volume 60 of this annual journal explores a range of Byzantine subjects: the classification of stamping objects (including six previously unpublished metal stamps); the date and purpose of the construction of Constantinople''s church of Saints Sergius and Bacchus; the Coptic Church''s literary construction of its identity in post-conquest Egypt; the evidence for the tenth-century revision of the so-called "Chronicle of 811"; an unusual development in the iconography of St. Menas; and versions of Niketas Choniates'' "History."

Also included are editions and translations of Byzantine Communion prayers newly discovered in Massachusetts and two funerary epigrams written by Manuel Philes; both articles include commentary. The volume concludes with reports from 2003 and 2004 on Dumbarton Oaks-supported archaeological fieldwork projects on a church in Bizye and an aristocratic rock-cut Byzantine settlement in Cappadocia.
