Cross-Cultural Exchange in the Byzantine World, c.300-1500 AD : Selected Papers from the XVII International Graduate Conference of the Oxford University Byzantine Society Hardback

Edited by Kirsty Stewart, James Moreton Wakeley

Part of the Byzantine and Neohellenic Studies series

Description

Profound cultural change defined the Byzantine world.

For centuries after its embrace of Christianity, exchanges of ideas, objects, peoples and identities continued to flow across an empire that found itself located at the crossroads of so many other worlds.

This book brings together a selection of important contributions to the study of cross-cultural exchange in the Byzantine world in its largest geographic and temporal sense.

It employs an interdisciplinary and comparative approach, presenting papers first given by graduate and early career academic researchers from around the world at the XVII International Graduate Conference of the Oxford University Byzantine Society, held on 27 and 28 February 2015. Le monde byzantin se caracterise par de profondes mutations culturelles.

Durant les siecles suivant l'adoption du christianisme, la diffusion des idees, la circulation des objets, les mouvements des peuples et le dialogue entre les identites n'ont pas cesse de metamorphoser cet empire lui-meme situe au carrefour d'un grand nombre d'autres civilisations.

Cet ouvrage rassemble plusieurs contributions soigneusement choisies et constitue un apport majeur a l'etude des echanges culturels dans le monde byzantin dans un cadre geographique et temporel large.

Son approche interdisciplinaire et comparative presente des interventions inedites d'etudiants et de jeunes chercheurs venus du monde entier pour participer a la dix-septieme conference internationale de l'Oxford University Byzantine Society qui s'est tenue les 27 et 28 fevrier 2015.
