mosaics by Ann Gardner

The Man Who Came After Hyacinth Bobo

 


This is a novel about the Fourth Crusade, the one launched by Pope Innocent III which ended up sacking Constantinople, the greatest city in Christendom.
And why does it feature on the Home page of Mosaic Matters? Two reasons - the author is your Editor, Paul Bentley, and of course mosaic pops up now and then - there is even a description of how the Byzantines made their wall mosaics. More...
