The Jaharis Gospel Lectionary: A Manuscript for Use in Hagia Sophia

John Lowden
Professor, Courtauld Institute of Art

The lecture examines an illuminated Byzantine manuscript, which went on display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in November 2008. Recent research has determined that the virtually unknown book was used in Hagia Sophia, the seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople, and/or possibly in one of its nearby dependent churches. Made around 1100, it remains in superb condition.
