Eusebius of Caesarea's Imperial Theology and the Politics of the Iconoclastic Controversy
2013 0-7734-4476-9
The Byzantine Iconoclastic controversy (ca. 726-843) was a debate over the legitimacy of the liturgical use of images. It had important political and theological implications, which modern scholarship generally tends to treat unconnectedly. The work explicates the relationship between the political and theological dimensions of the controversy.
