Professor, Comparative Arts & Letters
Mark Johnson does research primarily in two periods: that known as Late Antiquity, encompassing late Roman, Early Christian and early Byzantine art and architecture and in the medieval period, more specifically, on the art and architecture of the Eleventh and Twelfth centuries in Norman Italy. He has published on the architecture, mosaics, patronage, and literary sources about art of these periods. His books include The Roman Imperial Mausoleum in Late Antiquity (Cambridge, 2009) and The Byzantine Churches of Sardinia (Wiesbaden, 2013). He is the “University Professor of Ancient Studies” since 2014.
