Translation Activity in Late Byzantium, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, June 11–13, 2018

During the last two Byzantine centuries, a significant number of texts were translated from Latin, but also from Arabic and other languages, into Greek. Most of them are still unedited or available in editions that do not meet the modern academic criteria. Nowadays, these translations are attracting scholarly attention, as it is widely recognised that, besides their philological importance per se, they can shed light on the cultural interactions between Late Byzantines and their neighbours or predecessors. This conference aims at addressing this desidertatum.
