"The Monastery of Saint Catherine at Mount Sinai contains the world's richester collection of Byzantine icons. ... These extraordinarily beautiful paintings, numbering more than 2,000, include works from every century and for some periods the only extant examples. ... This volume presents icons from the sixth to the tenth centuries, a period from which no other examples have survived. It includes a considerable number from the pre-iconoclastic period before A.D. 726 and the four important icons brought to Russia from Sinai in the nineteenth century. The publication of this spectacular collection, beginning with the present volume, will form the cornerstone of any future history of icon painting." (dj). (Inventory #: 156407)
