Session organized by Dr Nicole Eddy (Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library)
In addition to written sources like letters, Byzantine material culture provides evidence for identity and status. Coins and seals, textiles and jewelry, and inscriptions and art objects — these objects provide a window on the ways in which individuals and groups at all levels understood and presented themselves and their place in society. Although focusing on objects from Byzantium this panel welcomes speakers working on materials from a comparative perspective.
