With English Translation and a Collation with the Hebrew and French Source Texts. Abraham Ibn Ezra’s Astrological Writings, Volume 8.
Author: Shlomo Sela
The present volume focuses on Henry Bate of Mechelen (1246–after 1310), the first scholar to bring Ibn Ezra’s astrological work to the knowledge of Latin readers. The volume has two main objectives. The first is to offer as complete and panoramic an account as possible of Bate’s translational project. Therefore, this volume offers critical editions of all six of Bate’s complete translations of Ibn Ezra’s astrological writings. The second objective is to accompany Bate’s Latin translations with literal English translations and to offer a thorough collation of the Latin translation (with their English translations) against the Hebrew and French source texts.

This is volume 2 of a two-volume set.

Volume Editor: Robert Bork
The essays in this volume reflect on and build on the remarkable legacies of Robert Mark and Andrew Tallon, who pioneered the application of high-technology research methods to the study of Gothic architecture.

Combining personal reminiscences and historiographical discussions with meticulous geometrical and structural analyses based on photogrammetric and laser-scanned building surveys, this book offers valuable new perspectives not only on Mark and Tallon themselves, but also on major churches including the abbeys of Saint-Denis and Alcobaça, Santa Maria Novella in Florence, Notre-Dame in Paris, and the cathedrals of Clermont, Reims and Wells.

Contributors are: Sheila Bonde, Robert Bork, Lindsay S. Cook, Michael Davis, James Hillson, Kyle Killian, Peter Kurmann, Clark Maines, Ethan Mark, Stephen Murray, Sergio Sanabria, Dany Sandron, Ellen Shortell, Elizabeth B. Smith, Rebecca Smith, Arnaud Timbert, Stefaan Van Liefferinge, and Nancy Wu.

AVISTA Studies in the History of Medieval Technology, Science and Art is a wide-ranging and multi-disciplinary book series publishing scholarly work on a variety of aspects of technology, science, art, and architecture of the Middle Ages. The series publishes works that emphasize the interrelationship of these fields. In doing so, the series aims to promote a cross-disciplinary perspective, and submissions are encouraged from any field of study, including (but not limited to) history, art and architectural history, manuscript studies, literature, and history of science. Studies with a closer focus or works examining wider contexts and global developments are equally welcomed. The series publishes monographs, thematic edited volumes, and, on occasion, text editions and translations. All proposals from early career projects to those from established scholars are invited.

The series is published in affiliation with the Association Villard de Honnecourt for Interdisciplinary Study of Medieval Technology, Science and Art (AVISTA), an international society dedicated to the cross-disciplinary exploration of the linked fields of technology, science and art in the Middle Ages.

This series was published by Routledge until August 2020. For volumes published before August 2020, please contact Routledge.
Author: Petr Balcárek
This book offers the first comprehensive study of Byzantine influence on the art and iconography of East Central Europe. Petr Balcárek focuses on the Byzantine cultural and religious legacy in the Czech lands, thereby bringing to light rarely seen images and presenting fresh hypotheses based on newly-explored theological interpretations and historical evidence.

Including a discussion of the Czech and Slovak historiography on Byzantine studies, the work analyses significant artistic and iconographical artefacts in light of the intricate historical and political relationships that shaped Byzantine presence in these territories, comparing them with similar objects from other areas of Byzantine influence in order to draw wide-reaching conclusions.
