Bringing together scholars from diverse periods and disciplines of Hellenic and Byzantine studies, this volume explores the shifting shapes and functions of laughter and tears, with consideration given to visual, performative and musical arts, as well as to written records. It looks back and forward from focal points at the transitions from late antiquity to Byzantium and from Byzantium to the Renaissance and showcases the variety, audacity and quality of the finest Byzantine works.
