Byzantium Rediscovered by J. B. Bullen
Book DescriptionThis book is the first to investigate a fascinating and important yet relatively unfamiliar subject: the revival of interest in the Byzantine style of architecture and decoration in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Byzantine Revival was always a minority cult that attracted outsiders, visionaries and extremists, and Barrie Bullen's original and scholarly narrative tells a vivid and entertaining story of the colourful figures in Germany, Austria, France, Britain and America who rediscovered Byzantium and reinterpreted its style to promote widely differing aims.
