More than a thousand years later, using Moschos's writings as his guide, William Dalrymple sets off to retrace their footsteps and composes "an evensong for a dying civilization" --"Kirkus Reviews," 483p. plates (some col) maps on endpapers. bibliography.index.

By Tomkinson, John L

Athens: Anagnosis Books, 2003. (NEW : Book will be sent direct from the publisher in Greece) "When emissaries returned to Kiev from Constantinople, where they had attended divine worship in the church of Ayia Sophia, they reported to Prince Vladimir 'We did not know whether we were in heaven or on earth, for assuredly such beauty cannot be found on earth anywhere else...'
