A book was published in 1996 by the two authors of this article and George Lavva. The book’s title was “Ecclesiastical marble sculpture in the Cyclades from the 16th to the 20th century”. The book in question was the outcome of much research done by an art historian and architects of the University of Thessaloniki who surveyed, studied, photographed and analyzed the construction of ecclesiastical sculptures in more than 140 churches. Then, in 1998 A. Florakis’ book comes out with the title Marble Popular Temples of Tinos. The authors of this article argue that Florakis in full knowledge of their book Ecclesiastical Marble Sculpture in the Cyclades, borrows to a great degree much of the book’s contents and in retrospect dated his own book as published in 1996 and not two years later as is the case.
