The workshop aims to explore the Italian archives that preserve photographs of Byzantine and Eastern Mediterranean art and architecture, a network that is poorly known in its entirety.
The digital environment poses new affordances and constraints, bringing up many practical and ontological questions and ideas surrounding the medieval manuscript and its digital counterpart.
The Byzantine Studies Research Center of Boğaziçi University is pleased to announce the organization of its fourth Byzantine Greek Summer School to be held online, from 29 July to 18 August, 2021.
For those unable to access resources in person due to Covid-19 restrictions, there are two digital opportunities to find copies or online links to necessary texts through networking with fellow medieval scholars.
Given the global Covid-19 outbreak, for the academic year 2020-2021 FIDEM has exceptionally decided to provide only a modular, online DEEM program.

I have been recently working on sedilia in cathedrals and as an art historian, I enjoy little more than a game of spot-the-difference. Here are some resources I have found very useful for a glimpse of that state of our greatest medieval buildings before the Gilbert Scott-led frenzy of restoration mania. They are available copyright-free on archive.org so I could not help sharing them.
