  1. Biographical research in Eastern Europe : altered lives and broken biographies

    Aldershot ; Burlington [Vt.] : Ashgate, 2002.

    The transition from socialism experienced by the countries of Eastern and Central Europe during the 1990s has been recognised as a profound historical watershed. It is only in the 21st century however, that the meanings and dimensions of "post-socialism" are becoming apparent. The use of the "biographical perspective" in research provides a unique avenue for studying these changes. This text is an edited volume that brings the work of many of the most advanced and active biographical researchers working on Eastern Europe together in one volume.

  2. A companion to Byzantine iconoclasm

    Leiden ; Boston : Brill, [2021]

    "For more than a millennium these ritual damnations of those who argue against the adoration of icons in Christian worship have been proclaimed by the Orthodox Church on the first Sunday of Lent, when the "Feast of Orthodoxy" is celebrated. They are only one part of a document called The Synodikon of Orthodoxy, whose reading is the centre piece of the feast"--Few subjects have generated more argument in early medieval, Byzantine, and Orthodox history than Iconoclasm. Supposedly for more than a century the Orthodox Church and Byzantium were wracked by controversy over religious figural imagery, culminating in 843 in the establishment of icon veneration as a fundamental Orthodox practice. In this multidisciplinary Companion to Byzantine Iconoclasm, twelve contributors set the controversy in context and critically examine the key debates: what was the argument about? How much destruction and persecution were there? What caused and fuelled the controversy? What links, if any, were there to events in the Islamic Caliphate and the Latin West? And how can we use our contested literary and material sources to offer answers to these questions? Contributors: Benjamin Anderson, Marie-France Auzepy, Sabine Feist, Mike Humphreys, Robin M. Jensen, Dirk Krausmuller, Andrew Louth, Ken Parry, Richard Price, Christian C. Sahner, and Jesse W. Torgerson.
