Abstract:   Since its publication, this book has become one of the most important histories of Byzantine pottery. The first chapter deals with medieval methods of manufacture in the light of the discovery of several potters' workshops at Corinth, the second with classification and terminology. A separate chapter is then devoted to each of the main categories of Byzantine pottery, classified according to type of decoration. Each group is analyzed from the point of view of artistic and chronological development. A brief summary concludes the discussion and the catalogue of 1,788 pieces constitutes the remainder of the book.
