The problem is that the volume contains neither enough general material to constitute a proper, systematic introduc- tion to the discipline nor enough specialised material to constitute a proper research collection, so that neither potential readership is properly served. While these are excellent in themselves, they cannot substitute for a broader survey of hagiographical literature from throughout the empire during the whole of the target period c. The Oxford handbook is very clear about what it wants to do, does it extremely well, and does it at substantially less cost than the present volume.
It will easily win over the greater portion of the intended readership of this volume, those seeking an introduction to Byzantine studies. In one sense this is unfortunate, because similar essays in the two volumes can sometimes complement one another very well. The result is that they provide a much better understanding of the history of the coinage as a whole when read together.
What is a Byzantine Icon? Constantinople versus Sinai
One also notes that several contributors appear in both volumes; their natural unwillingness to repeat what they had already written for the Oxford handbook may to some extent have dictated the contents of the present volume. Parenti dei Romani: mito Troiano e diplomazia. Pragmateiai Bari: Edipuglia, His study differs from the last notable work on the subject, A. Related Papers. By Odysseas Gilis. Introduction, Why Byzantium?
Ultimately, readers will find insights into the emergence of modern Byzantine studies and of popular Byzantine history that are informative, novel and unexpected, and that provide a thorough understanding of both.
This is a comprehensive review of the current state of Byzantine studies, as of Stephenson has edited well, and contributed several articles. Michael Angold, discusses the crisis of the As a publishing editor, one maintains their project, just as a scholar maintains their thesis. An editor must understand the market, just like a PhD student must understand a field of research. A publisher must network and market to grow projects, just as an academic must engage with others to further their own project.
Both the editor and the academic must have strong organisational skills to balance multiple projects, be they professional duties or research, teaching, and conferences. Furthermore, Dr Hammond explained that her experience in academia serves as an advantage in the academic publishing industry, as she is familiar with the university hierarchy, methods of researchers, and even such matters as the academic calendar, which differ from business culture. She asserted that for her, and other PhDs, doctorates may permit quicker ascension through the ranks of the academic industry publishing industry.
Though she stressed that such companies are looking for business-minded editors, academic experience is always welcome, as are freelance publishing experience and related internships. June 18, by standrewshistory Leave a comment. In Catherine Batt and Rene Tixier eds.

We began by visiting the old town of Riddarhomkyrkan and Riddarhuset The House of Nobility where we were lucky enough to be given a tour. In addition, we heard about how the House functions, as well as being shown the specific plaque for each person ennobled, a great many of which were Scots. In the afternoon, a few of us went to the National Archives of Sweden and under the guidance of several PhD students, we learnt how to engage with archival sources and how to beneficially use them within our studies.
The following day we ventured out to the Armemuseum The Army Museum which brought the class into contact with a wide array of artifacts. The group went around the different rooms, such as the one on camp life, the trophy exhibition, as well as the presentation of several flags and banners. Each exhibit brought the war to life in different ways, but it was only a taste of what was to come in the afternoon.
The class ventured out to the museum vaults, where we had the incredible opportunity to see and interact with artifacts from the period. Ranging from flags, to war drums, and from muskets to swords, we were able to see first-hand see these objects which undoubtedly brought the war into our hands and history to life.

We began our last day by visiting the Krigsarkivet the Military Archives. During our visit the archivists brought out different documents, from Swedish Muster Rolls full of British regiments, to maps and orders of battles. The Vasa had sunk on its first voyage, and subsequently it has been reconstructed and a museum built around it. To walk around a ship of its stature and grandeur was an incredible way to finish off the trip, leaving us speechless.
The ability to walk round Stockholm and see the history in the buildings, as well as Brits intertwined within the museums was an unforgettable experience, and a great way to further study and understand the period of the Thirty Years War. In total contrast, a few of us even took the time to further enhance our museum experience in Stockholm by visiting the Abba Museum.
The Byzantine World
Filed under Admin , Events , Undergraduates. June 8, by standrewshistory Leave a comment. Image attrib. Seven hundred years ago, on July 5 th , , St Andrews Cathedral was formally consecrated. The cathedral had been under construction for years and was already home to its Augustinian community, but a great storm in had blown down the west front of the building and greatly delayed its dedication. This summer, the celebrations commemorating this important anniversary aim to recreate some of the pageantry and significance of the original event.
A range of institutions, societies, and research initiatives have combined efforts to create an exciting line-up of public lectures on the history of the cathedral, historical tours of the burgh, and viewing opportunities with extant manuscripts and objects, to take place throughout June and early July.

A free exhibition at the Museum of the University of St Andrews, throughout April and June, will showcase more of the extant material related to the cathedral, and tell the story of the consecration. In addition, digital reconstructions of the cathedral and its environs, created by Smart History and made available by Historic Environment Scotland, will be presented as an opportunity to view the cathedral as it might have looked in its glory days: a soaring, atmospheric, busy, and vital centre of religious life, pilgrimage, and lay devotion.
Thursday 5 July, begins at 9. Sunday 8 July, remembrance begins at 9. Filed under Admin , Events , Research , Staff.
