End of 16th century, and the famous Art guidebook (Hermeneia) by the Dionysios Fournensis is from 18th century. One should be aware, that the latter, in all technical and iconographic divisions, very often repeat the original Byzantine practice. But differentia-tion of byzantine elements from the later additions is a fairly complex task. The Late Byzantine period (1261–1453) is marked by a paradoxical discrepancy between economic weakness and cultural strength. The apparent enigma can be resolved by recognizing that later Byzantine diplomatic strategies, despite or because of diminishing political advantage, relied on an increasingly desirable cultural and artistic heritage. Conceived as the third of a trio of exhibitions dedicated to a fuller understanding of the art of the Byzantine Empire, whose influence spanned more than a millennium, 'Byzantium: Faith and Power (1261–1557)' follows the 1997 landmark presentation of 'The Glory of Byzantium,' which focused on the art and culture of the Middle Byzantine era.
