Liturgy and the Illustration of Gregory of Nazianzen’s Homilies. An Essay in Iconographical Methodology
By Christopher Walters
Revue des études byzantines, Vol.31 (1973)
Abstract: The method of studying the transmission of manuscript illuminations, as presented by K. Weitzmann in Illustrations in Roll and Codex, is considered with regard to Byzantine manuscripts. There follows a critique of Galavaris’s application of this method to the liturgical edition of Gregory of Nazianzen’s homilies. The author concludes that the illustration of this edition has no archetype, consisting rather of various adaptations of the illustration of the full edition ; that it was little influenced either by Lectionary models or by liturgical ceremonies.
