Abstract :
Analyzes the ritual behavior of the Middle Byzantine emperor in his 'official' public church, the great cathedral of S. Sophia in Constantinople. The focus is not merely on what the emperor does in certain regularly recurring ceremonial situations in the great church, but also on what these elements of ritual behavior mean to those who witness them or hear about them. The study is intended to be an analysis of the significance of the ritualized behavior patterns of an emperor, particularly in the liturgical context of worship at sacred functions in S. Sophia. ;
