The Studies in Byzantine History and Civilization series aims to cover all aspects of Byzantine culture: political and religious history, literature and philology, theology, archaeology and art history, from the late antique to the late Byzantine periods. The series will also include the aftermath of Byzantine history and culture ("Byzance après Byzance") and the interaction between Byzantium and the East, such as with Arabs and Persians, as well as between Byzantium and the West, such as with the Pope and Latin-speaking people.
