Where and how does one experience Byzantium in modern Greece today? This episode of Byzantium & Friends features a conversation with Dimitris Krallis, which ranges from statues and streets to politics and Church politics in particular, drawing on our own experiences and training as Byzantinists. There is a lot more that we could say about this fascinating topic, but we explore various domains where Byzantium is alive or long gone, or where it shambles on in zombie form.
Dimitris Krallis is a Professor and Director of the SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies at Simon Fraser University. His latest book is Serving Byzantium’s Emperors: The Courtly Life and Career of Michael Attaleiates, and he translated with Anthony Kaldellis The History by Michael Attaleiates.
