My alma mater, Penn State, has published Icons And Power: The Mother of God in Byzantium. I haven’t read it, but it’s reviewed in Bryn Mawr Classical Review.

While we’re on the subject of icons of the Blessed Virgin … Kevin Edgecomb reviewed another volume, Mother of God: Representation of the Virgin in Byzantine Art, which includes a preface by Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople.
