  1. Hello!
    Great post! The series of lectures on Byzantine culture seems fascinating. I would like to ask, what motivated the organizers to choose this topic, and which lectures do you personally find most interesting? Thank you!
    Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts


    1. Thank you for your comments, Stuart. In response, organizers can be motivated by a number of factors, but, in general terms, their choice can be determined by their own personal research interests, and are often influenced by available grant support from awarding bodies.
      My own personal interests are archaeology, but especially mosaics because they are often unaltered from the time they are installed, and so provide an insight into the artist’s, and their sponsor’s, mind.
      Look forward to reading what interests you over the coming months… and good luck with your own interesting website.
      All the best, Bernard
