The intention of the Symposium organizers is to contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of the Early-Christian, Byzantine and Post-Byzantine past of Niš, as well as of its reverberations to the later spiritual, cultural and artistic creative endeavors in Niš and its surrounding area, the Balkans and Europe. This would imply the interdisciplinary approach and the participation of art historians, historians, architects, archaeologists, classical philologists, literature-historians, theologians, philosophers… http://www.ni.rs/byzantium/english.php
