Moscow: Gos Istoricheskii muzei (GIM), 2019. Sewn cl. First as archbishop in Novgorod and later as Metropolitan of the Russian Orthodox Church, Makarii undertook one ambitious publishing endeavor after another, culminating with his determination to compile in one multivolume work all Russian ecclesiastical literature. The literary and educational value of such a project for churchmen and the literate elite was obvious. Another benefit significant for the history of book art in Europe was his decision not to stint on the beauty or quality of the books. The early years of Makarii's career passed in a monastery where the church frescoes were painted by Dionysius, whose works are deemed masterpieces of medieval Russian art, and Makarii built on that heritage finding the best artists to do the miniatures and ornaments of the books he commissioned. In this catalogue of the State Historical Museum three introductory chapters summarize Makarii's career as churchman and art patron and characterize the aesthetic level and technical aspects of the works he commissioned, pointing out, for example, that the ornate initials and other embellishments have a precise structural purpose indicating to the reader a change in subject or section. Manuscript art in the sixteenth century under Makarii gained from its traditional roots in Byzantine styles and from new influences reaching Russia through Western European engravings and books. Published here are primarily works of church art commissioned or initiated by Makarii, first of all, illuminated manuscripts (including ornate bindings), and also related works of painting — icons and frescoes, carved and embroidered icons. 454 p., 28 cm, approx. 270 color illus., Rus.
