Popis The following pages will be organised as follows: the starting point for this study is the apsidal decoration of the church of Talin, where an empty throne – with a book depicted on it – dominated the space. This image will then be contextualised in the framework of throne representations with various attributes, which allow us to understand the dissemination of this visual (and ritual) concept around the Mediterranean. Thirdly, the political significance of thrones with books between the fifth and ninth centuries will be analysed, and finally, we will try to understand the political-ecclesiastical context in which the Talin image was painted.
