This is an extract from: Byzantine Magic edited by Henry Maguire.

The papers in this book were originally delivered at a colloquium that took place at Dumbarton Oaks February 27--28, 1993. I am grateful to the scholars who agreed to speak at the colloquium and who submitted their texts for publication here. I would also like to thank the members of the audience who engagedin lively and interesting discussion. In particular, I am grateful to Stanley Tambiah, who contributed the perspectives of a social anthropologist in a most illuminating way and helped us to avoid the pitfalls of Byzantine parochialism.

Finally, thanks are due to Hedy Schiller, who helped both to organize the meeting and to prepare the manuscript for publication, and to the staffof the Dumbarton Oaks Publications Office, who saw the book through the press.
