This commemorative volume of essays, linked to a conference marking the 1000 year anniversary of her death, helps place Theophano in a broad cultural and historical context. The historical, intellectual and artistic background of her age are described by a group of leading early medievalists, with essays on her education, her surroundings, and on the image of noble women in the Middle Ages.
