International scientific symposium “Days of Justinian I”

Days of Justinian
The International scientific symposium “Days of Justinian I” is an annual interdisciplinary scientific forum for presentation of the latest research and discussion of various aspects of Byzantine and Medieval Studies, which includes the treatment and interpretation of Byzantine and Medieval cultural, historical and spiritual heritage in contemporary European politics and history.

The theme of this year’s scientific symposium “Macedonia and the Balkans in the Byzantine Commonwealth” is focused on analyzing the specifics, differences and similarities of the Balkan region from the perspective of the impact of Byzantine as a dominant political, cultural, religious and aesthetic model. The purpose of the scientific meeting is to explore the concept of the Byzantine Commonwealth and to define the place of Macedonia and the Balkans, treating the phenomenon of Byzantium as Universal Empire being in a continuous interaction and conflict with Western Christianity and Christian-Islamic Orient.
