Two newly researched cycles of mosaics in San Marco, Venice

The lecture presents two cycles of mosaics in San Marco, Venice that need to be better known. They are thus: Mary’s childhood within the western bay of the south transept, and Genesis, which is situated in the atrium.
The research about them is relatively new and, even though at least two books have been written about them, they still need more public exposure.

The lecture can be followed easier if the attendees read in advance my book Elena Ene Drăghici-Vasilescu, ‘Glimpses into Byzantium. Its Philosophy and Arts’ (an anthology of peer-reviewed articles published by the author from 2019 to 2021), Oxford, 2021.
