The Byzantinist Society of Cyprus is organizing an online lecture series under the general title “Mediterranean Crossroads”. During the first cycle of the series (Spring-Summer 2022), Professors Judith Herrin, Alessandro Taddei and Athanasios Markopoulos will offer presentations shedding light on different aspects of Byzantine history and culture.
The lecture series aims at the promotion of Byzantine and Medieval Studies through the research perspectives of leading international scholars. Cyprus and the Mediterranean have been at the crossroads of history and culture and as such the lectures highlight the work and the mission of the Byzantinist Society of Cyprus.
