Graphic Signs of Authority in Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages

Ildar Garipzanov

Oxford Studies in Medieval European History

  • The first synthetic history of graphic signs of authority from late antiquity and the early Middle Ages
  • Offers a truly interdisciplinary study in its treatment of material artefacts, diverse visual media, and relevant textual evidence
  • Includes approximately 150 visual images highly relevant to its narrative and largely unknown to medievalists and specialists in late antiquity
  • The book's broad geographic scope breaches the traditional historiographic division between the early medieval Latin West and early Byzantine East
