Mapping the Sacred in Byzantium

Welcome to the webpage of the Byzantine Studies conference on Mapping the Sacred in Byzantium: Construction, Experience and Representation!

The conference brings together scholars of Byzantium to explore novel ways to conceptualize and evaluate the production and representation of (sacred) space in the Byzantine world, aiming to contribute to the broader research on spatial paradigms and practices. It addresses spatial themes from the varying disciplinary perspectives of archaeology, art history, literature, and theology.
