Der Große Palast von Konstantinopel: Tradition oder Erfindung?

  • Jeffrey Michael Featherstone EMAIL logo
From the journal Byzantinische Zeitschrift


The Great Palace of Constantinople lies buried under the modern city of Istanbul. On the basis of the tenth-century text De Cerimoniis many reconstructions of the Palace and the ceremonial enacted in it have been proposed. Reexamination of this and other texts reveals the Palace not as a continuous tradition from Late Antiquity, but an instrument of ideological manipulation of the Macedonian dynasty.
