About

Founded in 2010 through a generous gift from the Jaharis Family Foundation, the Mary Jaharis Center for Byzantine Art and Culture is dedicated to the promotion and advancement of knowledge about the rich heritage of Byzantine art and culture. Our programs, aimed at a diverse audience from high school students to university professors, encourage the study and appreciation of the arts and culture of the Byzantine Empire, which spanned three continents and over a thousand years, and the understanding of its enduring cultural and historical legacy.

Its establishment at Hellenic College Holy Cross provides the Mary Jaharis Center a unique opportunity to foster Byzantine studies within an Orthodox Christian community and to approach the study of Byzantium from the perspective of Orthodox theology, scholarship, and the arts. The Center is committed to Byzantine studies within and beyond the academy and strives to create programming and educational and research resources that engage scholars, the wider public, and the Orthodox Christian community in our mission.
