The 2016 edition – volume 9 of IKON – the annual journal of iconographic studies published by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Rijeka. This is a high quality, beautifully illustrated, publication examining the religious iconography of paintings, murals and ecclesiastical art history. It was my pleasure to work with the editor, Marina Vicelja-Matijašić, again in the proofreading of the English translations in this issue.
I am extremely proud to have been involved in the Cradles of European Culture project which involves nine of today’s European countries, which during the Early Middle Ages were part of the Kingdom of Francia Media (Middle Francia). The very impressive publication Swords, Crowns, Censers and Books is a contribution to this important project published by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Rijeka and edited by Marina Vicelja-Matijašić. Over 432 pages it details many archaeological sites and investigations throughout Europe, including the important Croatian site of Crkvina – Biskupija near Knin. I worked as the language editor on the English texts provided for the book by contributors from all over Europe.
