Textiles and ceremonial of the Greek Church under the Ottomans

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Dr. Nikolaos Vryzidis (Grabar Post-Doctoral fellow) will address the topic “Textiles and ceremonial of the Greek Church under the Ottomans”.

This Work-in-Progress Seminar is organized by the Gennadius Library of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.

Nikolaos Vryzidis received his PhD in 2015 from SOAS-University of London after completing a dissertation on Greek ecclesiastical costume of the Ottoman period. He then conducted post-doctoral research based at the British School at Athens and organised an international workshop on Mediterranean textiles. His academic interests include the material culture of Ottoman Christians and artistic exchanges between Byzantium and the Middle East.

The presentation will be in English.
