Andrei Dumitrescu studies late Byzantine visual and religious culture, focusing on the role of wall paintings in shaping the experience of sacred space. His research aims to unravel the multi-layered meaning conveyed by mural programs in connection with liturgy, literature, and politics. It also addresses the complex interactions between the Byzantine world and the Latin West, especially the Italian Peninsula.
