Debate Why and How to Read Byzantine Texts Nowadays? (Russia)

The Byzantine authors just imitated the classical ones, without creating anything original. Their literature is a crooked mirror, where you can’t get to the facts through parables. The Christian Empire had no sense of humour; each text was a theological preachment.

We refute these and other stereotypes in a new episode of our podcast — a recording of the debate on Byzantine literature with Candidates of Philology Julia Mantova, Maxim Kisilier, and Dmitry Chernoglazov.
