This book explains secular dress from the eighth to the twelfth centuries through an examination of painted representations.

'This book is a welcome addition to the history of Byzantine dress. It presents a concise coverage of the Middle Byzantine period (eighth to twelfth centuries) using paintings (both frescoes and illustrated manuscripts) as its main evidence...It will be a good addition to the libraries of Byzantine historians and dress historians.' - Medieval Clothing and Textiles
