11th International Symposium of Byzantine Sigillography
9 - 10 May 2014
Pera Museum Auditorium
The International Symposium of Byzantine Sigillography is organized by the International Committee of Sigillography every five years between the two general congresses gathering Byzantinists from all over the world. This 11th symposium in İstanbul will be held at the Pera Museum on 9 – 10 May 2014, and is jointly organized by the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation and University of Paris-Sorbonne. It brings together specialists in Byzantine sigillography from many countries. This year, it especially focuses on the Eastern provinces, but its main contribution will be the presentation of unpublished seals from excavations or collections. For the first time, several specialists join from Turkey and present seals from the collections of Turkish museums. The wealth of their collections in this field has not yet been fully explored. This symposium should serve as a starting point of a systematic exploration of these museums’ collections.
