Byzantine Matters, Averil Cameron at the Oxford Literary Festival

Byzantine Matters (Princeton University Press, Forthcoming 2014), Averil Cameron at the Oxford Literary Festival

Historian Professor Averil Cameron says there are many misconceptions about Byzantium and argues that it is important to integrate the civilization into wider histories. She explains why Byzantium should be central to debates about the relationships between West and East, Christianity and Islam, Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy and the ancient and medieval periods. Prejudices, says, Cameron still deform both popular and scholarly understanding of the Byzantine civilization.
