Beauty and the Male Body in Byzantium : Perceptions and Representations in Art and Text, Hardback Book

Beauty and the Male Body in Byzantium : Perceptions and Representations in Art and Text Hardback

Description

A neglected aspect of Byzantium, physical beauty appears as a quality with an unmistakable dark side, relating ambiguously to notions of power, goodness, evil, masculinity, effeminacy, life and death.

Examined as an attribute of the human and, in particular, of the male body, this study of beauty refines our understanding of the Byzantine world.
