The series Byzantina Australiensia was created to publish scholarly work in the field of Byzantine Studies.  Its major focus has been in the direction of translations and commentaries of the ancient source material and the publication of conference papers, but any subject will be considered if it is related to Byzantine Studies and the publication will fit into the format of the existing series.

Byzantina Australiensia is officially recognized as a refereed series and all material submitted will be submitted to at least one independent referee before it is accepted for publication.

Proposals for future volumes should be addressed to the AABS Secretary at with a completed proposal (three pages maximum).

Contributors to edited volumes will each receive one printed copy of their own book.
