Abstract

Using two examples from church decoration (frescoes) on Crete, the paper focuses on what the appearance of certain specific Venetian wares (e.g. glasses) in an otherwise traditional Byzantine-Christian iconography says about the daily interaction of the Cretans and the Venetians during the fourteenth century, as well as about the status the Venetians and their artefacts enjoyed on the island.
