Description

Epigrammatic poetry is pertinent to virtually every aspect of the production and reception of art in the Byzantine world. Verse inscriptions, or epigrams, appear on a range of objects, from monumental architecture to jewelry. Art historians have only recently begun to integrate the evidence of epigrams in the study of Byzantine art, aesthetics, and material culture. This session aims to take a fresh and penetrating look at the complex interplay between art and epigrammatic poetry in Byzantine culture.
