Between Islam and Byzantium provides the first complete analysis of the development of the visual expression of medieval Armenian rulership during the years 884-1045 CE. Setting the art and architecture of the period more clearly in its original context this study provides a new perspective on the complex interactions between a broad range of nationalities, ethnicities and religions; shedding fresh light on the nature of medieval identity.
