Description - Studies on Constantinople by Cyril Mango

This volume is devoted to the history, monuments and topography of Byzantine Constantinople, and includes two specially written pieces as well as updates to the studies reprinted. Many of the articles deal with the imperial constructions of the first centuries of the city's existence - such as the columns of Constantine and Justinian, the Mausoleum of the Holy Apostles and the churches of St Sophia, St John of Studius and Saints Sergius and Bacchus - structures which provided the basic monumental framework around which Constantinople developed and its life was lived. In his reconstruction of these monuments and their history, the author demonstrates how much be achieved by combining the information gained from meticulous examination of the written sources, whether contemporary or from post-medieval travellers, with that provided by the surviving buildings themselves and the remains that have been excavated.
