Reviews

"This is an important work, which will be the basic reference book on the imperial cult chamber for many years to come."--Judith McKenzie, University of Oxford
--Judith McKenzie, University of Oxford (03/04/2015)
"With its spectacular illustrations and international team of expert authors, Art of Empire: The Roman Frescoes and Imperial Cult Chamber in Luxor Temple shows how the imperial government transformed a chamber in the ancient sanctuary of Amun-Re, probably reserved for the pharaoh, into a shrine for Roman emperor worship."--Ingrid Rowland, New York Review of Books?--Ingrid Rowland "The New York Review of Books "
Winner of the 2016 James R. Wiseman Award sponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America.-- (11/25/2016)
"This book is unquestionably of great importance for the study of the Roman monarchy in the tetrarchic period, of the Roman imperial cult, and of late Roman painting. It stands alone."--Roger Bagnall, Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, New York University-- (03/04/2015)
