Benjamin Anderson

Benjamin Anderson, associate professor of the history of art and classics, studies the visual and material cultures of the eastern Mediterranean and adjacent landmasses, with a particular focus on late antique and Byzantine art and architecture. He is co-author, with Robert G Ousterhout, of ‘Palmyra 1885: The Wolfe Expedition and the Photographs of John Henry Haynes’ (Cornucopia, £19.95)

His first book, Cosmos and Community in Early Medieval Art (Yale University Press, 2017), addresses the reception of Graeco-Roman astronomical imagery in the Byzantine, Frankish, and Islamic states. It has received the Charles Rufus Morey Book Award from the College Art Association (2018), and the Karen Gould Prize in Art History from the Medieval Academy of America (2020). He is currently writing a study (The Tragic Image: Fate and Form from Byzantium to the Baroque) of the “Oracles of Leo the Wise” and related oracular images; and publishes regularly on the history of archaeology and the urban history of Constantinople.
