Laboratory for Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Studies.

The Laboratory for Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Studies was founded in November, 2017 (Greek Government Gazette, Vol. II, 9 November 2018).  The name was changed from ‘Laboratory for Palaeography and the Conservation of Manuscripts and Old Printed Books’ and the Regulations for the Internal Functioning of the Laboratory were approved.  The Laboratory services the educational and research needs at undergraduate and postgraduate level of both the Department of History and Ethnology and of other Departments of the University in regard to Byzantine history, Byzantine and Post-Byzantine written material and Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Art.  The goals of the Laboratory are the following:

·        Collaboration with state bodies, legal entities of public and private law, local government organizations and other local bodies to promote the aims of the Laboratory;  the organization of conferences, symposia, one-day conferences and other academic activities; the inviting of scholars and other individuals from Greece and abroad who will contribute to the promotion of the aims of the Laboratory
·        Publication of work connected with subjects in Byzantine history, Byzantine and post-Byzantine writings and Byzantine and post-Byzantine art.
