Byzantine Musical Instruments

Grateful to the AIEB for this notice.

Byzantine Musical Instruments

Byzantine Musical Instruments project is the first scientific study to bring together a vast array of visual representations of Byzantine musical instruments from a wide range of contexts. The database not only exhibits the iconography of the preserved artefacts, but it also provides a unique classification of instruments, embodying several filters to help researchers make in-depth research by narrowing down several advanced search options such as geographical area, time period, and artifact type.

Monumenta Musicae Byzantinae

Grateful to the AIEB for this notice.

Monumenta Musicae Byzantinae


Monumenta Musicae Byzantinae (MMB) now offer a number of back volumes that are out of print or difficult to access as free pdfs on the newly revised web site. Following a decision by the editorial board, the necessary consents from legal heirs of the many contributors to the project are being collected and already now, a number of important studies and documents are available. In the case of facsimile editions, the offer concerns the meticulous manuscript descriptions and inventories (since images of the manuscripts themselves may be otherwise copyrighted, or can already now be studied on the increasing number of library websites offering digital facsimiles). In addition, a number of monographs and studies (MMB Subsidia), of transcriptions (MMB Transcripta), and the full edition of the OT lectionary (MMB Lectionaria) can be downloaded already now according to a Creative Commons non-commercial no-derivatives license.

Analekta Stagōn kai Meteōrōn - Analecta Stagorum et Meteororum

Grateful to AIEB for this notice.

New Scientifc Journal: Analekta Stagōn kai Meteōrōn - Analecta Stagorum et Meteororum

Dear Scholars of Byzantium,
My colleagues and I would like to bring to your attention the publication of the first issue of Analekta Stagōn kai Meteōrōn - Analecta Stagorum et Meteororum. It is a new biennial scientific journal dedicated to the history and heritage of the monastic community of Meteora, published by the Academy of the Metropolis of Stagoi and Meteora. Its first, celebratory issue aspires to open new horizons in the study of this preeminent cradle of Orthodox monasticism, through interdisciplinarity and different conceptions of monastic culture. It features research as diverse as the history of Thessaly under the Serbs, collections of Russian artefacts, the practice of monastic confinement during the Ottoman period, and the history of printing.
As a closing note, I am sharing with you the link to our academia.edu page: https://independent.academia.edu/AnalectaStagorumetMeteororum
On behalf of the editorial team
