Cecily Hilsdale studies the relationship between Byzantine and western medieval art. Examining why certain images should look Byzantine outside of Byzantium, her current project traces how the Byzantine visual idiom came to signify the sovereignty associated with New Rome on the one hand and a style devoid of imperial associations on the other.
