Online Lecture: The History and Significance of the Byzantine Prothesis Ritual, Nina Glibetić, Zoom, 17th February 2022, 17:00 (EST)

The Mary Jaharis Center is pleased to announce our next lecture: The History and Significance of the Byzantine Prothesis Ritual. In this lecture, Nina Glibetić, University of Notre Dame, discusses the history and development of Byzantine Prothesis ritual. This talk brings together manuscripts in several languages in order to trace the shifts and expansions of the Prothesis over time. It also nuances previous scholarly narratives by pointing to early Byzantine antecedents to this ritual and highlighting the diversity in local practices that characterized this rite prior to the emergence of its definitive form in Late Byzantium.

This lecture will take place live on Zoom, followed by a question and answer period. Please register to receive the Zoom link. REGISTER HERE.

Sponsored by the Mary Jaharis Center for Byzantine Art and Culture and Harvard University Standing Committee on Medieval Studies.
