Aquinas and the Supreme Court Liturgical Subjects: Christian Ritual, Biblical Narrative, and the Formation of the Self in Byzantium
by Derek Krueger

"A thrilling tour of Byzantine culture through wholly unexpected routes. With beautifully crafted prose, Krueger presents a trajectory lucidly drawn, filled with arresting insight and searing, poignant imagery; yet the account is concrete and concise, moving deftly through its chapters with impressive economy and formidable command of a wide array of textual and material evidence." — Susan Ashbrook Harvey, Brown University
