Dumbarton Oaks Papers

The annual journal Dumbarton Oaks Papers was founded in 1941 for the publication of articles relating to Byzantine civilization—society and culture from roughly the fourth through the fifteenth century in the Roman Empire and in successor and neighboring states. The journal treats sources not only in medieval Greek but in other premodern languages, including Arabic, Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopic, Georgian, Latin, Old Church Slavonic, and Syriac.

Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine Symposia and Colloquia

Every year Dumbarton Oaks hosts colloquia and symposia dealing with specific issues in Byzantine Studies. Many of these events result in material that merit in-depth treatment. Books in Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine Symposia and Colloquia provide the considered results. Volumes, which may include authors not involved in the original event, treat a discrete set of questions and issues, and bring scholars from across fields and disciplines into conversation with each other.
