This volume aspires to fill a gap in the bibliography on the subject, since there are no modern publications of the mosaics of the major Byzantine monuments of Thessaloniki aimed at the contemporary reader, both specialist and layman. The preserved mosaic decoration of the Rotonda, Hosios David, Ayia Sophia, Ayioi Apostoloi and the basilicas of Ayios Dimitrios and the Acheiropoietos is presented with lavish, high-quality illustrations and an elegant text that highlights the aesthetic values of the monuments. Contains 358 color and 36 black and white illustrations.
