The papers in this volume discuss many issues in Greek studies. The papers deal with
ancient Greek and Byzantine philosophy, philology, the history of Greece and the
Greek world, the history of the Greek Diaspora, and the teaching of the Greek language.
They cover a considerable span of time and space, crossing the boundaries of
various fields of research.
The papers on the ancient world range from discussions of Athenian pagan philosophy
in the fifth century BCE to Christian criticisms of pagan thought in Egyptian
Alexandria in the sixth century CE. The papers on the medieval and Modern
Greek world range from discussions of Byzantine Orthodoxy to debates about the
significance of Greek textiles in twenty first century Australia. The papers display the
diachronic and multidimensional relevance of Greek studies in the current world.
All of the papers were submitted to independent referees. Those that passed the
scrutiny of the referees were revised in the light of their comments. Sincere thanks
are extended to our referees who have provided considerable support in their field
of expertise in order to make this publication scholarly and academically sound and
useful for the future. Our gratitude is also extended to Maria Sakellaridis who has formatted
the texts and organised the publication in a creative and impeccable manner.
