In this volume, 14 students of Slobodan Ćurčić present chapters on Byzantine architecture, representing the wide variety of topics and approaches inspired by his teaching and mentoring over the past four decades.1 Taken together, the chapters provide a useful overview of the methodologies currently employed in the study of Byzantine architecture, as well as revealing the broad range and rich repertory of monuments. In this introduction, we attempt to situate the contributions of Ćurčić and his students more broadly within the scholarship on Byantine architecture of the last half century.
