Video highlights

This video presents highlights from the international workshop on “Holiness on the Move: Travelling Saints in Byzantium” organised by Dr Mihail Mitrea at Newcastle University on February 22, 2019. This workshop brought together researchers in the field of Byzantine literature, and especially hagiography, in order to explore travel and monastic mobility in Byzantium in connection to Byzantine ideals of sainthood, as reflected in hagiographic compositions. The event was organised in the framework of the MSCA-funded research project “Sacred Landscapes in Late Byzantium” (agreement no. 752292).
