Summary Das vorliegende Buch ist einem wesentlichen Aspekt des Marienkultes gewidmet; es untersucht den - regional unterschiedlich verlaufenden - historischen Prozess, der Maria, Mutter Jesu von Nazareth, bis zur Mitte des 9. Jh. im gesamten Byzantinischen Reich zur wichtigsten Fürbitterin der Gläubigen machte. Die Untersuchung berührt gleichermassen religiöse wie gesellschaftliche Aspekte; sie basiert ausschliesslich auf zeitgenössischen Vorstellungen und grenzt sich bewusst von späteren mariologischen Konzepten ab.
The present book is dedicated to one main aspect of the Marian cult: it investigates the historical process that made Mary, mother of Jesus, the most prominent intercessor across the Byzantine Empire at the end of Iconoclasm (843). The study touches religious and social issues, it refers only to contemporary ideas and sources and distinguishes itself consciously from later mariological concepts.
