Beato Francesco Maria Greco

Fondatore delle Suore Piccole Operaie dei Sacri Guori

Oliviero Giuseppe Girardi, author

Editrice Velar

Francesco Maria Greco: un vero "Sacerdote e Pastore secondo il Cuore di Dio". Umilissimo "operaio dei Sacri Cuori di Gesù e di Maria", come amava definirsi, svolse la sua missione al servizio dell'arcipretura di Acri, nella sua amata Calabria, e in particolare nella fondazione delle Piccole Operaie dei Sacri Cuori. Ad esse avrebbe trasmesso il fuoco del suo infaticabile zelo per l'evangelizzazione dei piccoli e la soave carità verso tutti i poveri.

Arte e iconografia a Roma

Da Constantino a Cola di Rienzo

Maria Andaloro - Serena Romano, authors

Jaca Book

I saggi raccolti in questo volume sono firmati da un gruppo di studiosi e specialisti della Roma medievale che analizzano il percorso della figuratività romana quale storia di lunga durata, in costante dialettica fra tradizione e innovazione. La trasformazione di Roma dall'era antica a quella cristiana viene colta nel passaggio dal «ritratto» - genere caratteristico dell'antichità e della tarda antichità - alle «icone» che hanno popolato i luoghi di culto romani, svolgendo un'importante funzione pubblica e politica. Il volume si sofferma su alcuni fra i temi portanti della cultura pittorica romana: la decorazione absidale quale nucleo caratterizzante dell'assetto figurativo delle basiliche cristiane; la pittura narrativa nelle navate e nei portici delle chiese, specie in relazione al «mestiere» del pittore e ai suoi repertori tradizionali; infine l'iconografia del ritratto pontificio. Il saggio conclusivo sugli anni di Cola di Rienzo diventa l'occasione per far luce sulla storia dell'immagine allegorica di Roma, anch'essa di lunga durata, dall'antichità a tutto il Trecento.

Constantine xi Dragas Palaeologus

1404-1453

The last emperor of Byzantium

Marios Philippides, author

Routledge

Constantine XI’s last moments in life, as he stood before the walls of Constantinople in 1453, have bestowed a heroic status on him. This book produces a more balanced portrait of an intriguing individual: the last emperor of Constantinople. To be sure, the last of the Greek Caesars was a fascinating figure, not so much because he was a great statesman, as he was not, and not because of his military prowess, as he was neither a notable tactician nor a soldier of exceptional merit. This monarch may have formulated grandiose plans but his hopes and ambitions were ultimately doomed, because he failed to inspire his own subjects, who did not rally to his cause. Constantine lacked the skills to create, restore, or maintain harmony in his troubled realm. In addition, he was ineffective on the diplomatic front, as he proved unable to stimulate Latin Christendom to mount an expedition and come to the aid of south-eastern Orthodox Europe. Yet in sharp contrast to his numerous shortcomings, his military defeats, and the various disappointments during his reign, posterity still fondly remembers the last Constantine.

The Siege and the fall of Consantinople in 1453

Historiography, Topography, and Military Studies

Marios Philippides - Walter K. Hanak, authors

Routledge

This major study is a comprehensive scholarly work on a key moment in the history of Europe, the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453. The result of years of research, it presents all available sources along with critical evaluations of these narratives. The authors have consulted texts in all relevant languages, both those that remain only in manuscript and others that have been printed, often in careless and inferior editions. Attention is also given to 'folk history' as it evolved over centuries, producing prominent myths and folktales in Greek, medieval Russian, Italian, and Turkish folklore. Part I, The Pen, addresses the complex questions introduced by this myriad of original literature and secondary sources.

Byzantium

The bridge from antiquity to the Middle Ages

Michael Angold, author

St. Martin's Press

Michael Angold's book is a clear, concise and authoritative history of the successor to Roman imperial power: the Byzantine Empire. Byzantium was a Greek polis on the Bosphorus that gained importance in 324 AD when it was re-founded by Constantine the Great and named Constantinople. One of the pre-eminent cities of the Middle Ages, Constantinople played a vital role in the emergence of the medieval order in which Byzantium, western Christendom and Islam became three distinct civilizations.

This book charts precisely the development and characteristics of Byzantine art and society. Angold begins in Constantinople, from which the new empire emerged, and examines the city in relation to the world of the early Middle Ages. He shows how the foundation and subsequent growth of the city altered the equilibrium of the Roman Empire and shifted the center of gravity eastwards; he describes the emergence of political factions and their impact on political life; analyzes the disintegration of the culture of late antiquity; and elucidates the reaction among Muslims and western Europeans to Byzantine iconoclasm.
