“The volume has three lengthy appendices (pp. 245–303), composed of an annotated translation of Nersēs of Lambron’s assessment of the issues at stake, the demands and counter-demands made by both sides (cf. the table provided on p. 78); his 1197 dialogue with George II Xiphilinus, patriarch of Constantinople (in office 1191–98); and a well-outlined biography of Šnorhali. One wonders why the first and second appendices were not combined to make a third part of the study, so as to show the aftermath of the once-sustained dialogue that came to a halt at the ill-fated Council of Hŕomklay in 1178, and why the third appendix was not incorporated into the introductory part.”
