"Le latin à Byzance" est un projet sur la compétence linguistique, sur l'identité culturelle et sur la transmission des textes latins dans la "noua Roma", entre les IVᵉ et IXᵉ siècles.

"Latin in Byzantium" is a project on the linguistic competence, the cultural identity, and the transmission of the Latin texts in the "noua Roma", between the fourth and the ninth centuries. The study of different fields (law, grammar, religion, tactics, etc.) and of a multiplicity of forms of writing (palaeographic, epigraphic, and papyrological ones) will give, for the first time, an in depth knowledge of the Latin speaking milieus in Byzantium and of the contexts where Latin was used. Taking into account the political and sociological factors will permit us to put the ancient sources in a broader problematic, across multiple disciplines and beyond the gaps between literary and non-literary texts, history and philology.

Alessandro Garcea is Full Professor of Latin language and literature at Sorbonne Université. Michela Rosellini is Associate Professor of Latin literature at the University of Rome-La Sapienza. Luigi Silvano is Lecturer in Byzantine studies at the University of Turin.
