Hell in the Byzantine World


The imagery of Hell, the Christian account of the permanent destinations of the human soul after death, has fascinated people over the centuries since the emergence of the Christian faith. These landmark volumes, by OU Art History's Angeliki Lymberopoulou, provide the first large-scale investigation of this imagery found across the Byzantine and post-Byzantine world, with a special emphasis on the imagery produced on Venetian Crete (1204-1669).

Angeliki's interview on the project for Inside United magazine can be viewed here.
