Byzantıne news

after constantıne

We are happy to announce the launch of  a new journal entitled "After Constantine: Stories fro the Late antique and early Byzantine era.

"After Constantine" is a peer-reviewed and open-access academic journal and it is published online once a year. Its purpose is to bring Late Antiquity to the spotlight by hosting papers that underline its importance to classic and byzantine studies and contribute to a better piece of knowledge in the academic community. And the journal is hosted and published by the Orthodox Academy of Crete (OAC), an entity which operates under the spiritual auspices of His All Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.
