The Oxford Centre for Byzantine Research was established in the summer of 2010 to present and promote research activity by senior scholars working in Byzantine Studies and related fields.

The Centre hosts and helps fund conferences, colloquia and special lectures, and also commissions and supports research projects by researchers working in Oxford and with close links with the University.

Oxford has long been one of the world’s leading centres for Byzantine Studies, where many scholars of the highest calibre have made their careers, including Dimitri Obolensky, Cyril Mango, Elizabeth Jeffreys, James Howard-Johnston, Sebastian Brock, Nigel Wilson, Robert Thomson, Kallistos Ware and Averil Cameron.

On the Centre’s website, you can find information about Lectures and Events in Oxford, current research projects, awards and grants, podcasts of recent lectures and latest news.
