Sacred Songs: Studies in Byzantine Hymnography by Eva Catafygiotu Topping
LOOK INSIDE the book (PDF of sample pages)
“Eva Topping’s book brings together seventeen important studies which examine in careful detail the rich bounty of Byzantine hymns. Her studies address who the Byzantine hymnographers were – including significant women hymnographers. These chapters treat in depth specific Orthodox hymns for major feast days, Lent and Holy Week, and specific saints, with a sensitive, yet analytical presentation. Ms. Topping’s introduction to Byzantine hymnography admirably sets the stage for understanding both the literary dimensions and the spiritual treasures of the hymnological wealth of Byzantine Orthodoxy. This book is an important publishing event for the understanding of the spiritual life of Byzantium and the Orthodox Church’s ethos. We are all indebted to the author for this sterling offering.” — Rev. Dr. Stanley Samuel Harakas, St. Nina Quarterly, Volume 2, No. 4
